‘Utopia’ begins a voyage

Stoppard's play bows at Lincoln Center

One down, two to go: “Voyage,” the first part of Tom Stoppard‘s three-play epic “The Coast of Utopia,” opened Monday at Lincoln Center Theater, featuring a huge, starry cast that includes Ethan Hawke, Billy Crudup and Martha Plimpton.

In London, where “Coast” played in 2002, all three plays preemed together, whereas LCT is rolling them out incrementally, with part two bowing in December and part three opening early next year.

Stoppard said breaking the sprawling, erudite, complicated “Coast” — about 19th century Russian intellectuals — into its individual parts shouldn’t be a problem for auds.

“I always saw them as three plays that could stand alone, that you could see in any order,” the scribe said. “Of course, I may be the only person who thinks this.”
