Just in case you don't know what I want for Passover, I'll make it crystal clear: The new poster for Arcadia. For some who's lived their lives at the intersection between technology and Stoppard, there's nothing quite as compelling as the image of a white rose desolving and resolved into a length of cat5.
Playbill has published a story about Arcadia and, while I wouldn't describe the article as having any surprises, let me give you a snippets from the article:
Arcadia, according to producers, “is set in April 1809 in a stately home in Derbyshire. Thomasina, a gifted pupil, proposes a startling theory, beyond her comprehension. All around her, the adults, including her tutor Septimus, are preoccupied with secret desires, illicit passions and professional rivalries. Two hundred years later, academic adversaries Hannah and Bernard are piecing together puzzling clues, curiously recalling those events of 1809, in their quest for an increasingly elusive truth.” [more]
I'm not sure why the author of the article had to attribute the summary of the plot to the producer as if he hadn't read the play himself (oh) but that's the way it worked out.
And, really people, if you can arrange for me to get a post of the show, you would receive proper public adoration.
