Which would you see if you had to pick one?
Ferryman now has a new mostly American cast (very solid but I felt the Irish/British cast was better overall) whereas Lehman trilogy still has the original cast from London.Lehman trilogy gets my vote.

Haven't seen Lehman, but have seen Ferryman multiple times w/orig cast. Would recommend NYTimes review and PBS clip. It helps to understand the role of Irish Republican army battle w/british in 1970s and its role in the show. But the last NYTimes article link is about how the production team pulls off the props so it might be a spoiler. I've described it as a Hitchcock suspense with a "blow you away" Rod Serling Twilight Zone ending that makes the audience gasp every time. It won the Olivier award, the Tony equivalent. Good luckhttps://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/21/theater/the-ferryman-review-broadway-jez-butterworth.html http://www.pbs.org/wnet/amanpour-and-company/video/jez-butterworth-laura-donnelly-on-the-ferryman/https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/04/arts/ferryman-broadway-butterworth-mendes-animals.html
Having seen both, I would say Ferryman over Lehman. Plus if you want to see Lehman you're going to have to shell out $400 for premium seats or wait hours in line for rush. That should make your decision easier.
