The Broadway premiere of The Lehman Trilogy will resume its run this fall.
The Lehman Trilogy
The Lehman Trilogy returns to the Nederlander Theatre on Broadway from Sept. 25, 2021. Tickets for The Lehman Trilogy on Broadway will be available soon.
After sold-out runs at the National Theatre and New York's Park Avenue Armory, as well as a West End engagement at the Piccadilly Theatre in London, Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley reprise their respective roles in the Broadway premiere of The Lehman Trilogy at the Nederlander Theatre for a limited 14-week engagement. They're joined by Adrian Lester, making his Broadway debut. Read a five star review of The Lehman Trilogy on London Theatre Guide.
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. In a quintessential story of western capitalism, rendered through the lens of a single immigrant family, Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley, and Ben Miles portray the Lehman Brothers, their sons, and grandsons.
The Lehman Trilogy is told in three parts, presented together as one piece of theatre.
Simon Russell Beale, a regular on the London stage, earned a 2004 Tony nomination for his Broadway debut in Jumpers and brought the laughs when he assumed the role of King Arthur in Monty Python’s Spamalot in December 2005.
Adam Godley is a Tony Award nominee in his own right, scoring a nod for his turn as Lord Evelyn Oakleigh in the 2011 revival of Anything Goes. He previously made his Broadway debut in the 2002 revival of Noel Coward’s Private Lives.

On a cold September morning in 1844 a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside. Dreaming of a new life in the new world. He is joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish – Lehman Brothers – spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.
