Billy Crudup and Raúl Esparza, currently starring in the Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, appeared on Bloomberg’s "The Charlie Rose Show" April 19 to talk about the play that opened at the Barrymore Theatre March 17.


Rose first shows an interview with Stoppard that he conducted in 1995 when the show first premiered in New York City. Stoppard talks about the themes and subject matter of the play, which straddles two completely different time periods.

Directed by David Leveaux, Arcadia, according to press notes, "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."

The revival cast also includes Margaret Colin, Glenn Fleshler, Grace Gummer, Edward James Hyland, Byron Jennings, Bel Powley, Tom Riley, Noah Robbins, David Turner and Lia Williams.
