In the early 20th century, the events of the musical Leopoldstadt take place in a Jewish area of Vienna. It captures the lives of a flourishing Jewish family who had fled the ethnic cleansing in the East. It actually took Sir Tom Stoppard over a year to put it together, but far longer to come up with the fundamental idea. In fact, Lloyd Evans from the Spectator literally said, "It will go down in history as Tom Stoppard's Schindler's List." This show is remarkably visceral, capturing your feelings making you will feel a torn between so many emotions after watching it. This production will most likely be the last one Sir Stoppard will create given his age and the elongation of time it takes to produce something of this level of talent.
