A family and a company that changed the world
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 and triggers one of the largest financial crises in history.
Featuring a cast of three playing the Lehman brothers, their sons and grandsons in an extraordinary feat of storytelling told in three parts on a single evening.
Genuinely epic... Behold it with wonder – The New York Times
