Relevant, Masterful, Must see, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you like a moving, autobiographical look at Tom Stoppard's extended family in Vienna from 1899 to 1955: Definitely a MUST-SEE!!!

Don't see it if you don't like to see theatre dealing with the Holocaust, even if done so in a unique way. You would miss amazing writing & acting, though!!

The New York Times
October 2nd, 2022

CRITIC'S PICK " 'Leopoldstadt' is at its best not in instructing us how we must mourn a lost world but in bringing it lovingly back to life."

New York Magazine / Vulture
October 2nd, 2022

"As a vehicle for recovered memories, and for interrogating the injustice of difference and persistent intolerance, 'Leopoldstadt' is remarkable."

October 2nd, 2022

"In a radical departure from his usual intellectually esoteric style, Tom Stoppard’s new play is an intensely personal family drama."

The Wall Street Journal
October 2nd, 2022

" 'Leopoldstadt' is never merely a threnody for the victims of the 20th century’s greatest abomination. It’s rich in emotional complexity, and even exudes a dark majesty."

October 2nd, 2022

"If Stoppard sacrifices audience connection with any particular character...he compensates by etching a family history so sprawling and compelling that we embrace it even as we struggle with the details."

The Washington Post
October 2nd, 2022

"Perhaps what moved me so was the pain layered on in delicate brushstrokes in this fictionalized account, which was deeply influenced by Stoppard’s later-in-life discovery of his own Jewish roots."

New York Post
October 2nd, 2022

"There is simply too much sprawl here for a just-over-two-hour runtime to contain, and there are so many lofty aims that don’t cohesively gel."

New York Theatre Guide
October 2nd, 2022

"True to its goal, 'Leopoldstadt' presents stories one won't easily forget, and won't want to."
