Stoppard's Arcadia at the Folger

If you live in the greater Washington, D.C.-Baltimore region (hint, hint), it would be a great idea to go see this play--which closes June 14, btw. Especially if you have a philosophical/academic bent (ahem). It's a great production of an amazing play--and contemporary (1994, I believe) even.

Too tired to say more. But do try to see it.

It's a great production of a wonderful play. The intimate space of the Folger is one of the best places in DC to see a play, and this is one of the best plays we've ever seen there. I highly recommend, also!

Arcadia (and Tom Stoppard in general) is a long time favorite of the Gadfly household, for it involves both the theatre and chaos mathematics. Mrs. TG saw the premiere in London (Rufus Sewell playing Septimus) long ago. She had crappy crappy seats in the very back row. Also sitting in the back rows were the director and Tom Stoppard. mtg being one of the few people on earth who can recognize Tom Stoppard on sight, this was very nice for her.
