Embark on a journey through time with ‘The Lehman Trilogy.’
The Tony Award winner for Best Play, makes its Arizona premiere at The Phoenix Theatre Company, following captivating stints on London’s West End and Broadway. The show runs from Jan. 24 to Feb. 11.
This unconventional narrative transcends the typical rags-to-riches story, offering an epic tale spanning 163 years of history and three generations of the Lehman family.
In this gripping saga, follow three German-Jewish immigrant brothers and their descendants as they confront challenges such as fire, floods, wars, and financial crises to build a financial empire that changed America.
“In the production of ‘The Lehman Trilogy’ at Phoenix Theatre Company, we’re celebrating what makes humans so unique: the art of storytelling,” said Rod Kaats, director. “This thrilling play brings all of us together around a modern campfire, where the captivating and highly theatrical journey through the astonishing history of an iconic American dynasty unspools in front of audiences that would leave them talking for days … if they also weren’t left breathless!”
This extraordinary saga prompts audiences to question the true worth of success, how legacies are forged, and the values we hold dear in the aftermath of a catastrophic collapse.
The cast for “The Lehman Trilogy” at The Phoenix Theatre Company includes Michael Stewart Allen, Josh Clark and Michael Kary. The understudy cast includes Jayvan Bailey, Collin McConnell and James Zannelli.
