About The Lehman Trilogy

Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc changed the world, and now the award-winning play based on the family’s legacy, The Lehman Trilogy, has taken London, Broadway and Los Angeles by storm. Join the Lehman brothers, their sons and grandsons in this epic play, as it makes its triumphant return to London in January 2023, at the Gillian Lynne Theatre. Book The Lehman Trilogy tickets on TodayTix today.

Since The Lehman Trilogy had its world premiere at London’s National Theatre in 2018, we haven’t stopped talking about this ground-breaking play. London Theatre raved that “the singular alchemy of acting, design, and direction in this production is so superb that it must be witnessed.”

After an acclaimed opening at the National, The Lehman Trilogy moved from a sold-out run in the West End in 2019 to a Tony Award-winning Broadway outing in 2021, when it took home five statues including Best Play, Best Director for Sam Mendes, and Best Design for Es Devlin.

Adapted by playwright Ben Power from Italian writer Stefano Massini’s play The Lehman Trilogy, the story follows two centuries of the life and legacy of the famous finance family, from leaving Bavaria and immigrating to America in 1844 to the notorious bankruptcy collapse in 2008, triggering the largest financial crisis in history. This is a story about the hope and cost of the American Dream.

Witness the humble beginnings, outrageous successes, and devastating failure of the financial institution that would ultimately bring the global economy to its knees. Experience the play’s triumphant return to the West End. Book The Lehman Trilogy tickets in London on TodayTix.

The Lehman Trilogy matinees begin at 1:00pm and The Lehman Trilogy evening performances begin at 7:00pm.

The Lehman Trilogy runs for 3 hours and 20 minutes, including two 15-minute intervals.

Tell Me More

The Lehman Trilogy is a theatrical masterpiece, unlike anything you’ve experienced on stage. This is an epic family drama at its finest. From Es Devlin’s award-winning set to Jon Clark’s incredible lighting design, and Nick Powell’s live piano score, The Lehman Trilogy is a feat of dynamic storytelling.

Even though hundreds of characters appear in the generational story, only three actors appear onstage in The Lehman Trilogy. The performers portray everyone from the brothers’ wives to babies – all while wearing three-piece suits. Get ready for a first-rate trio of performers giving a proper masterclass in their craft.

Ben Power’s adaptation zips through all the major events of 200 years of history in a theatrical masterclass. By the end of The Lehman Trilogy, you will have experienced a story about immigration, family, capitalism, and the emotional and literal costs of pursuing the American Dream.

What to Watch For:

  • Want to read more about The Lehman Trilogy play before seeing it on stage? Richard Dixon translated Stefano Massini’s 2016 novel, Qualcosa sui Lehman, (The Lehman Trilogy) into English in 2020.
  • Even though the Lehman Brothers investment firm no longer exists, some of the original Lehman Brothers office buildings are still standing. 7 West 54th Street — the Phillip Lehman residence — now holds New York landmark status.
  • In addition to being an acclaimed theatre director, Sam Mendes has directed several award-winning films, including American Beauty, Skyfall, and 1917. When you’re watching The Lehman Trilogy on stage, you’ll feel as if you’re watching an epic film unfold.
  • Although the original play is in Italian, The Lehman Trilogy premiered at Comédie de Saint-Étienne in France, before an eventual Italian staging at Piccolo Teatro in Milan.
  • Ben Power’s adaptation of Stefano Massini’s The Lehman Trilogy in London packs 163 years of family history into a thrilling three and a half hours.
