The Lehman Trilogy Broadway
Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls THE LEHMAN TRILOGY "a ticket worth cashing in your gilt-edged securities for. Behold it with wonder, humble theatergoer." This New York Times Critic’s Pick comes to Broadway direct from three sold-out engagements at the National Theatre, the Park Avenue Armory and London’s West End. Directed by Academy Award, Tony and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes, THE LEHMAN TRILOGY follows three brothers from their arrival in America in search of a new life, to the collapse of the firm they established, to the resulting financial crisis — the largest in history. The New York Post calls THE LEHMAN TRILOGY "the must-see event of the year," adding, "It is epic in every conceivable way. You dare not miss it. Do anything you can to get a ticket." As The Wall Street Journal says, “You should crawl across broken glass to see it."
The Lehman Trilogy was first commissioned by originating producer Neal Street Productions and developed and co-produced with The National Theatre at the Lyttelton Theatre in 2018, followed by an acclaimed SRO run at the Park Avenue Armory this past Spring, before returning to London for a 16 weeks sold-out run at the Piccadilly Theatre in the West End, May to August 2019.
Weaving together nearly two centuries of family history, this epic theatrical event and New York Times Critics' pick charts the humble beginnings, outrageous successes, and devastating failure of the financial institution that would ultimately bring the global economy to its knees. The Lehman Trilogy, "a ticket worth selling your gilt-edged securities for" (New York Times), is the quintessential story of western capitalism, rendered through the lens of a single immigrant family. Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley, and Ben Miles reprise their critically acclaimed portrayals of the Lehman Brothers, their sons, and grandsons, told in three parts presented as one evening in this "extraordinary theatrical experience" (The Daily Telegraph).
