Longacre Theatre | New York, New York
The events of Leopoldstadt occur in a Jewish neighborhood of early-20th-century Vienna. A rich Jewish family who escaped the tragedy in Eastern Europe is the plot line. It is almost unthinkable for most, but Sir Tom Stoppard gave up over a one year working on it, and spent even more time developing the idea. This downright masterpiece features some of the best production techniques ever employed on a stage, a moving story, and everything else you could possibly want to make your evening truly something very special indeed. Fans will be lining up to get tickets, and they will sell out quickly, but you can still purchase yours now from our limited supply. So be sure to move quickly to avoid frustration, or else someone else will be sitting where you are supposed to be.
The narrative of Leopoldstadt takes place in an early twentieth-century Jewish quarter of Vienna. The tale concentrates on a affluent Jewish family that manages to run away Eastern Europe before the tragedy happens 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 concept. No, no! This was no easy task 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 range of conflicting feelings. All the right components are there for a fantastic evening in this clever success. Sadly, due to his advanced age and the amount of time needed to create something of this quality, this is very likely to be Sir Stoppard's final theatrical production. Don't wait on this one, because you will end you up missing out on an incredible piece of art. This page has very limited tickets, so be sure to purchase yours now.
