Tom Stoppard’s new play “Leopoldstadt” will open on Broadway this fall.
Producers Sonia Friedman Productions, Roy Furman and Lorne Michaels announced Tuesday the production will play the Longacre Theatre for a limited engagement.
Performances are set to begin Sept. 14 with an official opening night scheduled for Oct. 2.
Casting will be announced at a later date.
“Leopoldstadt” originated on the West End in January 2020, winning the Olivier Award for Best New Play that year. The play returned to the West End for a 12-week run in 2021, following the pandemic-induced shutdown.
Patrick Marber, who directed in London, will helm the Broadway production.
The creative team includes scenic design by Richard Hudson, costume design by Brigitte Reiffenstuel, lighting design by Neil Austin, sound and original music by Adam Cork, video design by Isaac Madge, and movement by Emily Jane Boyle. Casting is by Jim Carnahan and Maureen Kelleher, and UK casting is by Amy Ball CDG.
“Any new Stoppard play is something to treasure, but ‘Leopoldstadt’ is truly a gift and our greatest living playwright’s most intensely personal piece,” Friedman said. “‘Leopoldstadt’ is a passionate drama of enduring love and familial bonds that asks us to bear witness to our pasts, no matter how painful that might be.”
