The narrative of Leopoldstadt starts in an early twentieth-century Jewish neighborhood of Vienna. The tale concentrates on a moneyed Jewish family that manages to evade Eastern Europe before the tragedy arises there. Critics absolutely love it, and Lloyd Evans of The Spectator wrote profoundly, "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 range of different of conflicting feelings. All the right additives are there for a fantastic evening in this spectacular success.
