The tale of Leopoldstadt takes place in an early twentieth-century Jewish area of Vienna. The tale centers on a affluent Jewish family that manages to evade Eastern Europe before the tragedy unfolds there. Critics absolutely love it, and Lloyd Evans of The Spectator wrote passionately, "It will go down in history as Tom Stoppard's Schindler's List." Some critics have even called it "an inexpressibly moving majestic play" (The Wall Street Journal), "Brilliant and gorgeous, A masterpiece" (Deadline) and it "ranks among Mr. Stoppard's greatest works" and rightly so because it took Sir Tom Stoppard over a year to write it and even longer than that to develop the narrative. No, no! This was no easy task and some can't even imagine what it would take to do it. With such a powerful plot you find yourself torn between a diverse array of conflicting feelings. All the right components are there for a fantastic evening in this excellent success. Sadly, due to his advanced age and the amount of time needed to create something of this quality, this is almost guaranteed to be Sir Stoppard's final theatrical production. Don't wait on this one, because you will end you up missing out on an incredible piece of art. This page has very limited tickets, so be sure to grab yours now.
