Sonia Friedman Productions is celebrating after the Broadway transfers of The Ferryman and Ink garnered six wins at the 2019 Tony Awards, while the National Theatre had plenty to be happy about following Bryan Cranston being named Best Leading Actor in a Play for Network and Hadestown (which finished a run at the National in January this year) scooping eight awards.
The West End transfer of the National Theatre’s The Lehman Trilogy, directed by Sam Mendes, will play at the Piccadilly Theatre from 11 May 2019 for a 12-week season. Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles will reprise the roles they originated at the National.
In the much-anticipated, upcoming English-language premiere of Stefano Massini’s The Lehman Trilogy, Adam Godley, Ben Miles and Simon Russell Beale will play the roles of the Lehman brothers, directed by Sam Mendes.
