The Lehman Trilogy comes to Broadway direct from three sold-out engagements at the National Theatre, the Park Avenue Armory and London’s West End. Directed by Academy Award, Tony and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes, The Lehman Trilogy follows three brothers from their arrival in America in search of a new life, to the collapse of the firm they established, to the resulting financial crisis — the largest in history.
SYNOPSIS: 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 soon 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. This is the story of a family and a company that changed the world.
