Tom Stoppard's Leopoldstadt is coming to Broadway, according to a tweet from the production. Auditions for the upcoming production are expected to take place later this month, according to press representatives. Dates and casting will be announced at a later date.
The production arrives from London where it made its world premiere. Patrick Marber will continue to serve as director for the Broadway run.
Set over several decades in Vienna, Austria, following the lives of a singular extended family, the play explores the human condition and its resilience in the face of traumatic history before and after World War II.
The play was scheduled to have its North American premiere at Toronto's Princess of Wales Theatre earlier this year, but the run was cancelled due to rising COVID-19 cases and the implementation of capacity restrictions, border closings, and quarantines. The Olivier-winning play originally premiered in London in 2020 at the Wyndham Theatre. The production reunited Stoppard, Marber, and producer Sonia Friedman, who last collaborated on Travesties in 2017.
