Longacre Theater | New York, NY
The tales of Leopoldstadt happen in a Jewish neighborhood of early-20th-century Vienna. An affluent Jewish family who escaped the tragedy in Eastern Europe is the plot line. It is almost unthinkable for most, but Sir Tom Stoppard gave up over a year working on it, and spent even more time developing the idea. This outright masterpiece features some of the best production techniques ever deployed on a set, a moving tale, and everything else you could possibly need to make your evening truly something very special indeed.

In the early 20th century, the events of the musical Leopoldstadt take place in a Jewish neighborhood of Vienna. It portrays the lives of a flourishing Jewish family who had fled the mass killings in the East. It actually took Sir Tom Stoppard over a year to put it together, but far longer to come up with the core principle. In fact, Lloyd Evans from the Spectator legitimately said, "It will go down in history as Tom Stoppard's Schindler's List." This show is unbelievably visceral, seizing your feelings making you will feel a torn between so many emotions after watching it. This show will most likely be the last one Sir Stoppard will create given his age and the distance of time it takes to produce something of this magnitude. This triumphant masterpiece has everything you could possibly need to make your evening truly something very special indeed. Several critics have defined Leopoldstadt as "An inexpressibly moving majestic play" – The Wall Street Journal, "Breathtakingly brilliant" – the Chicago Tribune and "A heart-rending epic" – The New York Times. You truly don't want to miss out on this superb piece of work, but you will if you don't act quickly. Be sure to get your tickets right now before it is too late.
