The narrative of Leopoldstadt takes place in an early twentieth-century Jewish neighborhood of Vienna. The setting mainly focuses on a rich Jewish family that manages to break free 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 imagine 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 ingredients are there for a fantastic evening in this terrific 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 final 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 limited tickets, so be sure to buy yours here.
