The Lehman Trilogy - 2021 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Hailed by The New York Times as "a genuinely epic production," The Lehman Trilogy comes to Broadway after acclaimed, sold-out runs at London's National Theatre, the Park Avenue Armory, and in London’s West End. The story of a family and a company that changed the world, The Lehman Trilogy unfolds in three parts over a single evening. Academy Award and Tony Award winner Sam Mendes directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Adrian Lester as the Lehman brothers, their sons, and grandsons. On a cold September morning in 1844, a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside dreaming of a new life in the new world. He is joined by his two brothers, and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish – Lehman Brothers – spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, triggering the largest financial crisis in history. Book now to witness this "remarkable exercise in storytelling" (The Washington Post) from the National Theatre and Neal Street Productions. The New York Post suggests "you dare not miss it. Do anything you can to get a ticket."

Featured Reviews For The Lehman Trilogy


‘The Lehman Trilogy’ Broadway Review: Sam Mendes Directs a Family’s Financial Undoing - The Wrap
It's a tour de force of direction and writing and Devlin's set rarely rests under Jon Clark's always dramatic lighting. Better yet, the designer's big glass box is framed by a Imax-like cyclorama that keeps updating us on the physical rise of Manhattan's ever-changing skyline - until we're literally swamped in nothing but office buildings (stunning videos by Luke Halls). Also thrilling is the depiction of a plantation fire, much earlier in the story, that the first Lehman brothers exploit to grow their store from a pop-and-pop operation to a major force in the cotton business.

THE LEHMAN TRILOGY: SAM MENDES’ LANDMARK PRODUCTION MAKES A TRIUMPHANT BROADWAY DEBUT. - New York Stage Review
It shouldn't work, it really shouldn't. A three-and-a-half-hour drama spanning over 160 years, featuring a mere three actors playing dozens of roles ranging from infants to coquettish young women to elderly men, depicting complicated historical and financial events with a minimum of scenery. And with much of the dialogue delivered in the form of third person narration, no less. It sounds like a recipe for disaster, but The Lehman Trilogy proves an unalloyed theatrical triumph.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, The Lehman Trilogy, which was previously set to play a limited, 16-week engagement this spring, is still hoping to arrive on Broadway in 2021, though perhaps at a different theatre. The London hit, which just began previews at the Nederlander Theatre before the Broadway shutdown, will need to find a new home due to a scheduling conflict.
