phoenix premiere

Praised for its riveting portrayal of a thoroughly American scandal, The Lehman Trilogy has drawn much critical acclaim. After enjoying a limited Broadway run, which received five Tony Awards including Best Play, don't miss this Phoenix Premiere! Charting the rise, and fall, of one of America's most powerful families, this dramatic epic is sure to leave you on the edge of your seat!

Chronicling the rise and fall of the immigrant Lehman family, from their small beginnings in a fabric shop in the mid-1800s to power players who shaped the history of Western capitalism and American politics as we know it. 

Adapted from the work of Italian playwright Stefano Massini by up-and-coming British dramaturg Ben Power, the 150-year and three-hour spanning epic never lets up in pace, energy, action, and intrigue. Rod Kaats directs this production from Phoenix Theatre Company.

What is the story?

Whilst it can be seen as a historical saga about the fortunes and eventual failure of a powerful Jewish immigrant family, or even a searing study/warning about the shifting nature and fragility of the American Dream, The Lehman Trilogy shies away from lecturing the audience and uses a minimalist style and elegant set design to keep its focus on adroit story-telling. Highlighting three distinct periods from the Lehman's illustrious lineage, the production begins in Alabama, where the original brothers begin their rapid ascent into the annals of American history. The drama then moves to the 1960s, where a shift in the family dynamic to include a trading division of outsiders causes a rift that leads to an explosive demise that still echoes throughout the present day.
