The Lehman Trilogy in New York

Following its sold-out run at the National Theatre, The Lehman Trilogy transfered to the Armory in New York.

From the arrival of three brothers from Bavaria to America in search of a new life to the collapse of the firm they established, triggering the largest financial crisis in history, the story of the Lehman Brothers traces the trajectory of western capitalism by following the fortunes of a single immigrant family.

Making its North American premiere, this electrifying production serves as a parable of the shifting definition of the American dream.
