The Lehman Trilogy, (finally) celebrated its triumphant Opening Night at the Nederlander Theatre

The five-time Olivier Award® nominated epic play, The Lehman Trilogy, (finally) celebrated its triumphant Opening Night at the Nederlander Theatre. Starring Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley, and Adrian Lester (in his Broadway debut), The Lehman Trilogy returns to Broadway after playing only three preview performances in March 2020. Directed by Academy Award and Tony Award winner Sam Mendes, The Lehman Trilogy is written by Stefano Massini and adapted by Ben Power.

The Lehman Trilogy is produced by The National Theatre and Neal Street Productions.  


Weaving together nearly two centuries of family history, this epic theatrical event charts the humble beginnings, outrageous successes, and devastating failure of the financial institution that would ultimately bring the global economy to its knees. The Lehman Trilogy is the quintessential story of western capitalism, rendered through the lens of a single immigrant family. Simon Russell Beale and Adam Godley reprise their critically acclaimed portrayals of the Lehman brothers, their sons, and grandsons told in three parts presented as one evening in this “extraordinary theatrical experience” (The Daily Telegraph). And the company welcomes the heralded Adrian Lester for this special Broadway engagement in his Broadway debut.  


“Original Music from The Lehman Trilogy” is now available wherever digital music on 

The CD of the album is available for pre-order on, as well as other major music retailers ahead of a release on October 22nd when it will also be available for purchase in the theater." 

Original Music from The Lehman Trilogy” includes a sweeping score from Nick Powell, which is featured in the production with Candida Caldicot performing the music live during each performance.

The Lehman Trilogy was first commissioned by originating producer Neal Street Productions and developed and co-produced with the National Theatre at the Lyttelton Theatre in 2018, followed by an acclaimed SRO run at the Park Avenue Armory in the Spring of 2019, before returning to London for a 16 week sold-out run at the Piccadilly Theatre in the West End, May to August 2019.  


The Lehman Trilogy and The Nederlander Theatre will follow New York State, New York City, and CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of all actors, production staff, theatre employees, and audience members. As public health conditions and the State's guidance for performing arts and live entertainment changes, the theatre will remain flexible and adapt to applicable health protocols, such as face coverings, health screening, enhanced air filtration and ventilation, and rigorous cleaning and disinfection.
