The tale of Leopoldstadt takes place in an early twentieth-century Jewish area of Vienna. The theme concentrates on a moneyed Jewish family that manages to flee Eastern Europe before the tragedy arises there. Critics absolutely love it, and Lloyd Evans of The Spectator wrote powerfully, "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 labor and some can't even fathom what it would take to do it. With such a powerful plot you find yourself torn between a wide assortment of mixed emotions. All the right components 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 likely to be Sir Stoppard's final theatrical production.
