T. CHARLES ERICKSON PHOTO After watching the new revival of Our Town at Long Wharf Theatre (reviewed here by Christopher Arnott), two Independent reporters—one who had repeatedly seen and read the play before, one who hadn’t—regrouped at Atticus Bookstore Cafe to hash out their divergent reactions.

T. CHARLES ERICKSON PHOTO Gordon Edelstein’s new Long Wharf Theatre production of Our Town is a magically normal, splendiforously matter-of-fact, divinely human interpretation of a world theater classic that, for all its self-consciously naturalistic tendencies, has a latter-day reputation of being formal and stuffy. This rendition, honoring the Long Wharf’s 50th anniversary, is mortal, moral and resplendently casual.

The Rep Reclines On The Shores Of Arcadia

by Christopher Arnott | Oct 13, 2014 8:45 am

JOAN MARCUS PHOTO Tom Stoppard writes for smart people really well. That means audiences as well as the characters in his plays.

In Arcadia—which the Yale Repertory Theatre is staging for smart audiences through Oct. 25 at the Yale University Theater, 222 York St.—Stoppard is dealing with true geniuses. One is the legendary British poet Lord Byron, who is never seen onstage but is on the minds of the main characters throughout the whole play. Another springs whole from Stoppard’s ingenious mind: a 13-year-old early-19th-century math prodigy named Thomasina Coverly, who doesn’t get the acclaim she deserves because of a series of circumstances, misunderstandings and chauvinistic assumptions. That sensitive plotl ine has made Arcadia a modern classic and one of the most produced of all Tom Stoppard’s plays.
