"Jessica Hutchinson's handsome, well-paced production deftly lays out the dual time lines, with stellar work by a pitch-perfect ensemble"
"THREE AND A HALF STARS ... the intimacy of the space and the ever-expanding palette of ideas Stoppard tosses into the mix mesh beautifully here ... this smart and emotionally satisfying production gains heat and energy over time."
"It is like time machines, only better ... People who would like the show are people that like poetry, math, and embracing meat ... it is fun, makes you want to learn more things, and is bittersweet."
"This show is a dignified and profound finale to New Leaf's extensive body of work. And they serve it up with tea and biscuits ... not to be missed."
"Harman and Granata are galvanizing, and their scenes blister ... every performance realized by director Jessica Hutchinson is authentic, beautifully articulated both vocally and physically."
"New Leaf gracefully handles both Arcadia's protracted language and the necessarily delicate timing ... Acting is rigorous, precise, and full of great heart."
"The well-cast ensemble feels natural together with Granata's cocksure bravura, Harman's subtle emotional internalizations and Fenderson's cheekiness standing out."
