The Arc(adia) Is Back

Billy Crudup is going back to familiar ground with familiar material.

The Tony winner is on board for the Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, which played on the Great White Way in 1995 and is returning in the spring.

The show, which had a sold-out run in London, features an ensemble cast that includes Margaret Colin (TV’s Gossip Girl), Raúl Esparza (Speed-the-Plow), and Crudup, who starred in the ’95 production as Septimus Hodge then (he will play Bernard Nightingale in 2011).

The plot of Arcadia crosscuts between a Derbyshire home in 1809 and a modern-day academic setting.

Previews will begin on Feb. 25 for a March 17 opening.
