The Lehman Trilogy

“True blockbuster theatre that will hold you captive until the final curtain call.” – Vanity Fair

By Stefano Massini, Adapted By Ben Power

Directed by Oánh Nguyễn

Ensemble Theatre Company’s riveting production at The New Vic theatre in Santa Barbara further confirms the 2022 Tony award-winning play’s epic stature among the likes of “The Kentucky Cycle” and “Angels in America.”

Director Oánh Nguyễn cedes little ground in quality or professionalism to the previous National Tour production.

Amid the fine production values, watching the actors’ energetic, at times acrobatic, often hilarious and always moving performances is to experience live theater at its spellbinding best.

About The Lehman Trilogy

The Broadway Hit!  Winner of the 2022 TONY Award for Best Play!  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.

The Lehman Trilogy runs approximately 3 hours plus two intermissions.
