Not that I could see. Although I spent the second act wishing I could flee, or at least have as much room as I would in a middle coach seat on a domestic flight, so maybe I missed the tie-in.

The NY Times writes about this that "By doing so, Tucker fulfills Bedlam’s mission statement to “reinvigorate traditional forms” and “collapse aesthetic distance.” But he’s also honoring one of Stoppard’s main provocations — that the unknowability of the past meets the unknowability of the here and now."

I did not see any of this. It felt like a gimmick. And a gimmick is one thing when it's just a gimmick. But when it causes you physical pain, you REALLY want there to be a pay-off.
