Why See The Lehman Trilogy?

Broadway ShowsPlaysOlivier Nominee True-life HistoricalPrestigeDrama

Broadway Transfer

Praised for its riveting portrayal of a thoroughly American scandal, The Lehman Trilogy drew much critical acclaim during its West End and off-Broadway run last year. Now the sweeping dynastic drama returns to the Big Apple and as it transfers to Broadway for a strictly limited 16-week run. Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles all return to reprise their Olivier nominated turns as the infamous Lehman Brothers and their decedents.

Chronicling the rise and fall of the immigrant Lehman family, from their small beginnings in a fabric shop in the mid-1800s to power players who shaped the history of western capitalism and American politics as we know it. 

Adapted from the work of Italian playwright Stefano Massini by up-and-coming British dramaturg Ben Power, the 150-year and three-hour spanning epic shines in the hands of its Golden Globe, Academy Award and Olivier Award-winning director Sam Mendes, never letting up in pace, energy, action and intrigue. 

WHAT IS THE LEHMAN TRILOGY ABOUT?

Whilst it can be seen as a historical saga about the fortunes and eventual failure of a powerful Jewish immigrant family, or even a searing study/warning about the shifting nature and fragility of the American Dream, The Lehman Trilogy shies away from lecturing the audience, and uses a minimalist style and elegant set design to keep its focus on adroit story-telling. Highlighting three distinct periods from the Lehman's illustrious lineage, the production begins in Alabama, where the original brothers begin their rapid ascent into the annals of American history. The drama then moves to the 1960s, where a shift in the family dynamic to include a trading division of outsiders causes a rift that leads to an explosive demise that still echoes throughout the present day.
