The National Theatre and Neal Street Productions have announced that the highly-acclaimed, five-time Olivier Award nominated epic play, The Lehman Trilogy, is set to resume performances on Broadway after the smash-hit, sold-out runs at London’s National Theatre and New York’s Park Avenue Armory, as well as a by-popular-demand sold out engagement in London’s West End.
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 remarkable, spellbinding exercise in storytelling” (The Washington Post), is the quintessential story of western capitalism, rendered through the lens of a single immigrant family. Simon Russell Beale and Adam Godley 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). And the company welcomes the heralded Adrian Lester for this special Broadway engagement in his Broadway debut.
