Hailed by The New York Times as 'a genuinely epic production,' The Lehman Trilogy is the story of a family and a company that changed the world.
Directed by Academy Award®, Tony Award® and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes, The Lehman Trilogy features a cast of three playing the Lehman brothers, their sons and grandsons, in an extraordinary feat of story-telling told in three parts on a single evening. The decades unfold on stage within the cinematic sweep of Tony Award®-winning designer Es Devlin's 'slowly rotating masterpiece.' (Variety).
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, triggering the largest financial crisis in history.
