Profound, Masterful, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if It’s an important work about assimilation and antisemitism and resonates very much today. Another brilliant Tom Stoppard work.

Don't see it if It’s a bit long without an intermission but still should see, lest history should repeat itself.

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!!

Intense, Profound, Masterful, Exquisite, Absorbing

See it if you want a story that needed to be told and Stoppard at his best. A powerful play that is beautifully acted, staged and directed.

Don't see it if you are not interested in a long, intelligent drama and cannot handle more than two hours without an intermission. Read more

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."

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."

Deadline
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."

New York Daily News
October 3rd, 2022

"I think I’ll remember this show the most for how it uses a family album...variously fascinated by various new photographic technologies as a tool for remembering."

Variety
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 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."
