The story of Leopoldstadt starts in an early twentieth-century Jewish neighborhood of Vienna. The setting concentrates on a affluent Jewish family that manages to run away Eastern Europe before the tragedy happens 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 concept. No, no! This was no easy job and some can't even imagine what it would take to do it. With such a powerful concept you find yourself torn between a range of different of mixed emotions. All the right components are there for a fantastic evening in this superb success. Sadly, due to his advanced age and the amount of time needed to create something of this caliber, this is likely to be Sir Stoppard's last theatrical production.
