From London’s National Theatre comes the story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening – filmed live from the West End and showing at 7 p.m. Friday, December 27 at the Newport Performing Arts Center’s Alice Silverman Theatre, hosted locally by Cynthia Jacobi and Gary Lahman.

Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (“Skyfall,” “The Ferryman”) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons.

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 the largest financial crisis in history.

This critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier-Award-nominated play features stunning set design from Es Devlin (“NT Live: Hamlet”) and is broadcast live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.
