The Lehman Trilogy @ ACT (Downtown Seattle) (ASL interpreted + audio described)
May 11 @ 2:00 pm

The Tony Award®-winning Best Play makes a thrilling Seattle debut after a triumphant run on London’s West End and Broadway. The Lehmans began as many American immigrants did in the 19th century: on a cold dock in New York City 1844 as a young Jewish man enters his new country for the first time. Joined by his two brothers, he lives the American Dream: from humble beginnings to outrageous success. 163 years later, that legacy—The Lehman Brothers—comes crashing down, triggering the largest financial crisis in history. How? Why? This extraordinary feat of storytelling invites us to question what success is worth, how legacy is defined, and what we value in the wake of devastating collapse.

ASL interpreted and audio described performance on 5/11 (matinee); see info here.

Previews 4/26-5/1; opens 5/2

Limited number of pay-what-you-choose advance tickets available for each performance. Rush tickets ($20) offered for all performances, if available. See discount ticket information here.
