A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

The Lehman Trilogy

Ahmanson Theatre, Performing Arts Center Of Los Angeles County / Los Angeles / Stage

While we continue to navigate the consequences of Lehman Brothers’ collapse in 2008, this epic play begins at the beginning. It is 1844 and Henry Lehman is just off the boat from Bavaria. “He took a deep breath, picked up his suitcase and … like so many others he stepped into the magical music box called America.” From the Lehmans’ humble beginning to their humbling end, we travel three centuries in three hours and 20 minutes. The original cast members Simon Russell Beale and Adam Godley continue in their roles, joined by Howard W. Overshown as the third Lehman brother. Directed by Sam Mendes. —C.J.F.
