The Lehman Trilogy Rehearsal Images Released

Posted 3rd January 2023

Rehearsal images have been released for the National Theatre and Neal Street Productions’ critically acclaimed, five-time Tony Award® winning production of The Lehman Trilogy.  For the first time they show Michael Balogun, Hadley Fraser and Nigel Lindsay taking on the roles of the Lehman brothers, and a whole cast of characters, including their sons and grandsons! They are joined by pianist, Yshani Perinpanayagam.

Returning to perform the roles of Janitor and understudy is Ravi Aujla, with Will Harrison-Wallace and Leighton Pugh also returning to their understudy roles.  Erika Gundesen is the understudy pianist.

On a cold September morning in 1844, a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside dreaming of a new life in the new world.  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, triggering the largest financial crisis in history.  Weaving together nearly two centuries of family history, The Lehman Trilogy charts the humble beginnings, outrageous successes, and devastating failure of the financial institution that would ultimately bring the global economy to its knees.

Rehearsals for The Lehman Trilogy began in December 2022. Performances begin at the Gillian Lynne Theatre 24 January 2023.
