The production, Leopoldstadt, unfolds in Vienna's Jewish community in the first half of the 20th century. It recounts the lives of a prosperous Jewish family that had escaped the pogroms in the East. It actually took Sir Tom Stoppard over a year to pen it out, but much longer to come up with the concept, and as a matter of fact, Lloyd Evans, from the Spectator actually said, "it will go down in history as Tom Stoppard's Schindler's List". This show is very expressive, pulling in your heart sentiments and you will get the feels big time. This outright masterpiece has everything to make your evening something honestly very special indeed, and it is very likely Sir Stoppard's last one given his advanced age and the amount of time it takes to create something of this magnitude. This is what some of the commentators have said about Leopoldstadt, "Brilliant and gorgeous. A masterpiece" – Deadline "This is a play that demands to be seen" – Daily Beast, and it "Ranks among Mr Stoppard's greatest works" – The Wall Street Journal.
