"Powerful! Rich and Rewarding! An irrepressible anthem of love and freedom. An affecting blend of intellectual engagement and emotional force. Pulses with the unstoppable force of love and desire." -The Boston Globe

"Tom Stoppard's stellar Broadway hit of this past season is one of his best pieces of writing ever. It's a meaty play for actors and includes unbelievable music, from the Rolling Stones to Pink Floyd to U2, sending a jolt of energy through the drama of the story that's terrifically exciting." – Peter DuBois

It’s August 1968, and Russian tanks are rolling into Prague. By 1990, the tanks are rolling out, and the Stones are rolling in. A sweeping drama spanning two countries, three generations, and 22 turbulent years, at the end of which all that remains is love — and rock ‘n’ roll.

An extraordinary theatrical event from four-time Tony Award winner Tom Stoppard (Arcadia and The Coast of Utopia), fresh from hit runs on Broadway and in London. A co-production with San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre.

"Stoppard's finest play! It had me hooked." – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Approximate Run Time: 3 hours, including one intermission
