The narrative of Leopoldstadt takes place in an early twentieth-century Jewish quarter of Vienna. The theme centers on a moneyed Jewish family that manages to run away Eastern Europe before the tragedy unfolds there. Critics absolutely love it, and Lloyd Evans of The Spectator wrote vehemently, "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 concept. No, no! This was no easy task and some can't even fathom what it would take to do it. With such a powerful story you find yourself torn between a diverse array of mixed emotions. All the right flavors are there for a fantastic evening in this wonderful 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 last theatrical production. Don't wait on this one, because you will end you up losing out on an incredible piece of art. This page has very few tickets, so be sure to purchase yours here.
