The Lehman Trilogy

Apr 20 - May 22, 2022

“Magnificent. A genuinely epic production.”

The New York Times

“An electric commentary on the American Dream gone spectacularly awry”


A.C.T. presents the National Theatre and Neal Street Productions’ international theatrical sensation, The Lehman Trilogy. Written by Stefano Massini, adapted by Olivier Award–nominated Ben Power and directed by multiple Olivier Award, Tony Award, and Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (CabaretThe FerrymanSkyfall1917), The Lehman Trilogy is the epic story of a family and a company that changed the world.

On a cold September morning in 1844, a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside dreaming of a new life. He is soon joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins with a small store in Alabama. One hundred and sixty-three years later, the firm they establish—Lehman Brothers—spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy and triggers the largest financial crisis in history. Told in three epic parts over one evening, The Lehman Trilogy is a modern theatrical classic.

The performance on Saturday, May 14 at 1 p.m. will feature open captioning.
