(Through Apr. 20) — 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.

Originally documented by Italian playwright Stefano Massini, this vast and poetic play gets a thrilling new life at the Armory following a sold-out run at the National Theatre in London in an adaptation by Ben Power and directed by Sam Mendes.

Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles reprise their critically acclaimed portrayals of the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons, spanning nearly two centuries and told in three parts on a single evening. Es Devlin’s set coupled with Luke Halls’s video design provides a panorama of a changing American landscape against which the dynastic drama unfolds.

“Genuinely epic… It’s the miracle of three men, on a nearly naked stage, resurrecting vanished lives and worlds, leaving an oddly indelible afterglow in that final fade into darkness.” — The New York Times, Critic’s Pick
