The Lehman Trilogy tickets

Following a sold-out run at the National Theatre, the NT and Neal Street Productions' critically acclaimed The Lehman Trilogy will transfer to the Piccadilly Theatre in May 2019.

Sam Mendes (Skyfall, King Lear) returned to the National Theatre to direct Ben Power's English version of Stefano Massini’s vast and poetic play, which was a hit across Europe, with Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles playing the Lehman Brothers, their sons and their grandsons.

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

Beg or steal a ticket for this brilliant show. Three outstanding actors with the most electric chemistry. The staging is so creative and lighting enhances all the action. The best thing I’ve seen in a very long time. Theatre to be relished .

The performances of the actors were faultless, the production brilliant and the whole evening overwhelming. I didn’t think I would ever see anything on a par with Trevor Nunn’s Nickleby a lifetime ago but I did last night.
