Leopoldstadt Set to Open on Broadway this September

7 June 2022

Sonia Friedman Productions is delighted to announce that the Olivier Award Winning Best New Play, Leopoldstadt, is headed to Broadway.  

Tom Stoppard’s 'masterpiece' (The Independent) will begin its Broadway run with previews on 14th September at the Longacre Theatre. Opening night is scheduled to be 2nd October.   

Leopoldstadt began in London’s West End pre-pandemic and continued with extra dates once theatres reopened in 2021.

Inspired by, but not based on, Stoppard’s own family history, the play begins in 1899 and chronicles 50 years in the life of one family. A cast of 38 is set to depict the passionate drama of love, family and endurance. 

Hailed as ‘A momentous new play. Both epic and intimate’ (London Financial Times) and ‘Breathtaking. The work of a master’ (Time Out London), Stoppard's Leopoldstadt will once again be directed by Patrick Marber, who directed the original London run.
