Last year Stefano Massini’s new play THE LEHMAN TRILOGY returned to Broadway’s Nederlander Theatre. Today it was announced that the play has received 8 nominations including “Best Play” (Stefano Massini, Ben Power), “Best Direction of a Play” (Sam Mendes), “Best Sound Design of a Play” (Nick Powell and Dominic Bilkey) and “Best Lighting of a Play” (Nick Powell and Dominic Bilkey).
Olivier winner Adrian Lester joined Simon Russell Beale and Adam Godley for his Broadway debut. All three men have since been nominated for “Best Performance By an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play”.
Adapted by Ben Power, THE LEHMAN TRILOGY weaves through nearly two centuries of Lehman lineage, following the brothers Mayer, Emanuel and Henry Lehman from their 1844 arrival in New York City to the 2008 collapse of the financial firm bearing their name. Sam Mendes repeats his work as director from the off-Broadway and West End productions.
