A Utopian Undertaking On Broadway (On So Many Levels)

Tom Stoppard’s new play is a mammoth undertaking. It requires “six and a half months of constant rehearsals — full days and part days — and 115 performances, including the three marathon performance days. Even harder when it’s an ensemble piece, where the actor’s name will appear somewhere in the crowd below the title. And harder still when it’s at a not-for-profit theater, with its do-gooder pay scale.”
