About this show

A rapturous, decades-spanning tale of Prague's rock revolution, Tom Stoppard's Rock 'n' Roll follows the passions and politics of a wily Marxist professor in Cambridge and his Rolling Stones-obsessed Czech protégé fighting for freedom in Soviet-dominated Prague. In arguably Stoppard's best and most personal work, Rock 'n' Roll is a powerfully lucid contemplation of sixties radicalism, the fall of communism, and the human craving for love and free expression--all to the beat of the Stones, Pink Floyd, and Syd Barrett, Floyd's disturbed genius, whose reclusive life becomes a haunting motif of the play. Direct from record-breaking runs on Broadway and in London, the play will feature several A.C.T. core acting company members. Official casting will be released soon.
