Reviews are in for Stefano Massini's The Lehman Trilogy, which opened on Broadway October 14 at the Nederlander Theatre. Previews resumed September 23, following a long pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The play weaves nearly two centuries of family history to chart the epic rise and fall of a financial institution that nearly destroyed the economy of the modern world. Starring are Adrian Lester as Emanuel Lehman, Simon Russell Beale as Henry Lehman, and Adam Godley as Mayer Lehman.

The Lehman Trilogy is directed by Sam Mendes and adapted by Ben Power.
