The Lehman Trilogy on Broadway

‘Magnificent. A genuinely epic production. Three of the most virtuosic performances you’re ever likely to see.’ 
(The New York Times)

Following critically acclaimed runs at the National Theatre, in New York and the West End, the National Theatre and Neal Street Productions’ The Lehman Trilogy transfers to Broadway from March 2020.

The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.

Sam Mendes directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play 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, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.
