Tony-nominated Broadway and West End veterans Adam Godley (Anything Goes), Ben Miles (Wolf Hall), and Simon Russell Beale (Spamalot) will return to the New York stage with the American premiere of The Lehman Trilogy.

The National Theatre of London's production will play the Park Avenue Armory's 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall March 22, 2019-April 20, 2019, under the direction of Sam Mendes. Told in three parts in a single evening, the play is written by Italian dramatist Stefano Massini and adapted by Ben Power, from a literal English translation by Mirella Cheesman. It is presented by the Park Avenue Armory, the National Theatre, and Neal Street Productions.

Godley, Miles, and Beale originated their roles in the work's National Theatre mounting, which is currently running in the theater's repertory through October 20. Charting the course of the Lehman Brothers firm from foundation to collapse, the three-hander features set design by Es Devlin, costume design by Katrina Lindsay, lighting by Jon Clark, music and sound by Nick Powell, movement by Polly Bennett, and video from Luke Halls.
