The play, Leopoldstadt, unfolds in Vienna's Jewish area in the first half of the 20th century. It recounts the lives of a prosperous Jewish family that had ran away from the pogroms in the East. It actually took Sir Tom Stoppard over a year to write it out, but much longer to come up with the idea, 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 strings and you will get the feels big time. This triumphant masterpiece has everything to make your evening something truly 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. Here is what some of the critics 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.
