National Theatre Live: The Lehman Trilogy

now - December 7, 2019 
Northwestern Wirtz Center
30 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston, IL
(847) 491-7282

The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.  On a cold September morning in 1844, a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside. He is joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish, Lehman Brothers, spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history. Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The Ferryman) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons.
