The Lehman Trilogy Announces Digital Lottery, Performances Begin Sept. 25

Stefano Massini’s The Lehman Trilogy, adapted by playwright Ben Power, will begin preview performances on Saturday, September 25, and has announced plans to launch a digital lottery. The play, helmed by Tony Award- and Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes, will officially open at Broadway’s Nederlander Theatre on Thursday, October 14, 2021, for a limited engagement.

The Lehman Trilogy digital lottery, powered by Broadway Direct, offers $40 tickets by entering here. The lottery will be available for all performances, and winners will be notified within minutes of the drawing. Lottery opens the day before the performance at 10 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m. Winners will have 60 minutes to pay for tickets online with a credit card. Tickets will be delivered via email the day of the performance. Seat locations and number of tickets awarded by the lottery are subject to availability and may be partial view.

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.

The Lehman Trilogy was first commissioned by originating producer Neal Street Productions and developed and co-produced with the National Theatre at the Lyttelton Theatre in 2018, followed by an acclaimed SRO run at the Park Avenue Armory in the Spring of 2019, before returning to London for a 16 week sold-out run at the Piccadilly Theatre in the West End, May to August 2019.

The design team for The Lehman Trilogy is composed of two-time Tony Award nominee Es Devlin (Scenic Design), two-time Tony Award winner Katrina Lindsay (Costume Design), Luke Halls (Video Design), Jon Clark (Lighting Design), Tony Award nominee Nick Powell (Composer & Sound Design), Dominic Bilkey (Co-Sound Design),  Candida Caldicot (Music Direction), Polly Bennett (Movement), and Charmian Hoare (Voice).
