Longacre Theatre | New York, New York
The events of Leopoldstadt take place in a Jewish neighborhood of early-20th-century Vienna. A well-to-do Jewish family who escaped the Holocaust in Eastern Europe is the plot line. It is almost unimaginable for most, but Sir Tom Stoppard spent over a year working on it, and spent even more time developing the concept. This outright masterpiece features some of the most brilliant production techniques ever used on a set, a moving tale, and everything else you could possibly need to make your evening truly something very special indeed.

The tales of Leopoldstadt take place in a Jewish neighborhood of early-20th-century Vienna. An affluent Jewish family who escaped the Holocaust in Eastern Europe is the center story. 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 concept. Critics absolutely admire it, and Lloyd Evans of The Spectator wrote emphatically, "It will go down in history as Tom Stoppard's Schindler's List." Others have even said things like "Brilliant and gorgeous, A masterpiece" by Deadline, "Ranks among Mr. Stoppard's greatest works," and "an inexpressibly moving majestic play" by The Wall Street Journal. This show is so intensely moving that it will leave you floundering to choose between competing emotions and thoughts. This dazzling success has everything you could probably want for a delightful evening. Sir Stoppard's advanced age and the length of time required to construct something of this caliber all but ensure that this will be his last stage production. This is an amazing piece of work that you don't want to lose out on, but if you hesitate, you will! So don't delay, buy your tickets from this page right this second.
