The production was fine, although the fake English accents were off every now and then: "Thackeray" pronounced as if there were a thacker-bee, for instance. (It's... continued

The seating was terrific! Thanks team! We parked in a garage around the corner of ACT. The show was mind blowing--all the intricate interwinging (math/perceptiom/paralel universes) It was brillant!!!!

We loved going to ACT. The play was a bit esoteric, and we felt lost with all the poetic and literary allusions. Guess we should have done some homework before we left. The actors were wonderful, and were audible and understandable..

A challenging and fun play with execellent cast. The transition from past to present was done very well. My husband and I had much to talk about at dinner after.

A wonderful play and a very fine group of actors. The bane of ACT has always been rather broad acting, but there's not even a touch of that here. The play involves a... continued

Arcadia is one of my favorite plays and the ACT production was beautiful and well acted. I really enjoyed it (even from the balcony.)

Arcadia started slowly; hang in there... the discourse quickly rewards patient audience members with laughs and a quick peek at what transpires for high-level academics in both the natural sciences and humanities departments. It's a magical ride.

At the ACT in San Francisco, we had no choice as to where the seats were. "Will Call" told us to go to the 4th level balcony. We were so far from the stage, it was... continued

Fantastic play, great price for wonderful seats. Much appreciated the ability to add a ticket for a friend who joined us and was seated with us.

Great play. Amazing acting to deliver such dense dialogue so effortlessly. Smart and witty and profound. We also had pretty cheap seats but still had a great view.

I loved the premise of travelling between time periods, but the actual plot was no interesting enough to keep me in my seat. We left after the first act disappointed. I hope it was worth the stay for others.

I would not recommend this play to friends. There were several witty funny moments however the majority of the play seemed flat and drawn out. Arcadia was an hour too long.
