Dominik Tiefenthaler has joined the West End cast of THE LEHMAN TRILOGY as it enters its final weeks in London.
Tiefenthaler replaces original cast member Ben Miles in the role of Emanuel Lehman, who has departed the production following 180 performances in both New York and London. Tiefenthaler previously understudied Miles in the role. Tiefenthaler’s screen screen roles include Boardwalk Empire, The Good Wife, Blue Bloods and Gossip Girl.
Tiefenthaler appears alongside original cast members Simon Russell Beale and Adam Godley as the Lehman brothers in the West End production.
THE LEHMAN TRILOGY, written by Stefano Massini and adapted by Ben Power, made its UK premiere last year in the National Theatre’s Lyttelton space directed by Sam Mendes. The production transferred to New York in early 2019 for a run Off-Broadway before making its West End premiere at the Piccadilly Theatre in May. The play was nominated for five Olivier Awards this year including Best New Play.
Presented in three parts across one evening, THE LEHMAN TRILOGY charts almost two centuries of family history, from the business establishment of Lehman Brothers in 1884, to its spectacular collapse in 2008. Three actors play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and their grandsons.
THE LEHMAN TRILOGY features set design by Es Devlin, costume design by Katrina Lindsay, video design by Luke Halls and lighting design by Jon Clark. The West End production is produced by the National Theatre and Neal Street Productions.
THE LEHMAN TRILOGY concludes it’s limited West End run at London’s Piccadilly Theatre 31st August 2019. Tickets are on sale now.
