Coast of Utopia

I studied Tom Stoppard at Oxford for a term and thoroughly enjoyed everything, though as we neared the end of our term, my professor was more reluctant to approach what was (at the time) his most recent work -- The Coast of Utopia. It seems very different from his past plays given the material... that and it's really three plays. It is, however, going to be performed at the Lincoln Center Theater in New York -- and if you catch one of the marathon performance days, you will devote 18 hours of your day (12 hours of performance time) to the theater. To see it all (be it all on one day or three separate performances spread over a several months), it will cost you close to $200, but you were just going to spend it on something silly anyway. If you're still not convinced, then just read this NY Times article and be done with it.
