The Lehman Trilogy

First Look: The Lehman Trilogy Arrives on Broadway

The Lehman Trilogy will celebrate its opening night at the Nederlander Theatre on Thursday, October 14, 2021. This opening comes 18 months after it was originally scheduled to open in spring 2020, the hiatus making this epic play even more powerful according to adaptor Ben Power.

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.
