The narrative of Leopoldstadt takes place in an early twentieth-century Jewish quarter of Vienna. The tale mainly focuses on a affluent Jewish family that manages to break free Eastern Europe before the tragedy unfolds there. Critics absolutely love it, and Lloyd Evans of The Spectator wrote vociferously, "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 ideas. No, no! This was no easy job and some can't even imagine what it would take to do it. With such a powerful story you find yourself torn between a wide range of mixed emotions. All the right flavors are there for a fantastic evening in this captivating success. Sadly, due to his advanced age and the amount of time needed to create something of this quality, this is very likely to be Sir Stoppard's final theatrical production.
