A masterwork. Far and away
the best thing I’ve seen.”
TRUE BLOCKBUSTER THEATRE THAT WILL
HOLD YOU CAPTIVE UNTIL THE FINAL CURTAIN CALL.”
Hailed by The New York Times as “a genuinely epic production,” The Lehman Trilogy played to sold-out houses on Broadway. The story of a family and a company that changed the world, this "peerless production" (New York Magazine) unfolded in three parts over a single evening.
Directed by Academy Award®, Tony Award® and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes, The Lehman Trilogy starred 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.
The Wall Street Journal cheered, “The Lehman Trilogy surpasses all praise" and The Chicago Tribune called it “a masterwork — far and away the best thing I’ve seen on stage."
