Leopoldstadt on Broadway Background
Tom Stoppard's Leopoldstadt comes to Broadway from London's West End where it made its world premiere in January 2020 and received both popular and critical acclaim. Stoppard is notably Britain's greatest living dramatist and playwright.
The Olivier-winning play originally premiered in London in 2020 at the Wyndham Theatre. This production reunited writer Tom Stoppard, director Patrick Marber, and producer Sonia Friedman, who all last collaborated on Travesties which appeared off-Broadway in 2017.
Show Strikes Gold at The Olivier Awards in 2020

What’s Leopoldstadt Like?
The show is set over a fifty year period in Vienna, Austria. The show follows the lives of a singular extended Jewish Viennese family. The play explores the human condition and its resilience in the face of traumatic history before and after World War II. The show has five acts which include:
- 1899: Where the family first gathers for Hanukkah celebrations
- 1900: Two of the family members Gretl and Fritz strike up an illicit affair
- 1924: Members of the family are now recovering from WW1, where one of them was killed and another maimed
- 1938: With the rise of Nazism and Hitler's hatred of Jews and Vienna, some of the family plans to escape to England. Others are scattered across Europe, many end up caught in the Holocaust and the extermination camps
- 1955: The survivors of the family solemnly gather in the family home in Vienna. Only 3 of the original family members survive. The remaining family members painfully recollect their memories and acknowledge their murdered family members
Is Leopoldstadt Good for Kids?
Although the show has a lot of historical references the show is not suitable for children under the age of 16 years.
The show contains references to a lot of adult subject matter including infidelity, murder, suicide, rape, violence and the extermination of Jews during the holocaust.
