The narrative of Leopoldstadt takes place in an area of Vienna that had a big Jewish population at the beginning of the 20th century. As the story unravels we find a affluent Jewish family who escaped the troubles in Eastern Europe. Most people can't even fathom how much work was put into this show, Sir Tom Stoppard worked on it for over a year and spent even more than that coming up with the design of it. Critics have fallen in love with it it so much that Lloyd Evans of The Spectator said, "It will be remembered as Tom Stoppard's Schindler's List." Others have raved "Brilliant and beautiful, a masterpiece" by Deadline, "Ranks among Mr. Stoppard's best works," and "an inexpressibly moving, majestic play" by The Wall Street Journal. This drama has it all wrapped up into one fantastic piece that will move you to feel and think a lot of different things in one go. This pretty awe-inspiring success has everything you could want for a fun night out, and this production is very likely to be Sir Stoppard's last play given his advancing age and the sheer amount duration it takes to make one. You really don't want to miss out on this great piece of work, and tickets are limited. Be sure to order yours from our site, right now.
