The story of Leopoldstadt starts in an early twentieth-century Jewish neighborhood of Vienna. The theme mainly focuses on a rich Jewish family that manages to flee Eastern Europe before the tragedy unfolds 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 ideas. 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 wide range of mixed emotions. All the right ingredients are there for a fantastic evening in this delightful success. Sadly, due to his advanced age and the amount of time needed to create something of this caliber, this is almost guaranteed to be Sir Stoppard's last 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 few tickets, so be sure to get yours now.
