NEW YORK (AP) - Billy Crudup (KROO’-dup), Margaret Colin and Raul Esparza will star in a new Broadway staging of Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia” next year.

David Leveaux, who directed a version in 2009 in London, will also helm the Broadway production. He previously directed the Stoppard plays “Jumpers” and “The Real Thing” on Broadway.

This will be the second time “Arcadia” has made it to Broadway, having made its premiere in 1995. Crudup was also in that production, but this time plays a different part.

Stoppard’s play is part detective story, part exploration of Newtonian physics against a backdrop of love and decay.

“Arcadia” will begin previews at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on 47th Street on Feb. 25. Opening night is March 17.
