"The Lehman Trilogy is an epic tale of multiple generations of a family as well as an introspective study on how a tightly run family business can expand and grow exponentially due to smart strategic investments but then fail when bad business decisions are made and the wrong people are put in positions of power. While I had a few issues with the last part of the play and some of the staging, it's a deeply human story about the strength of family, the power of brotherhood, and the drive for ambition and wealth that may find you reflecting on your own personal business decisions and choices and how the drive for wealth and power can often not end up how you'd planned."  - Gil Benbrook, (click here to read the complete review)

"The Tony Award-winning play is being presented in a superb Arizona premiere production by The Phoenix Theatre Company.  Everything about this wonderfully thought-provoking play is flawless from Rod Kaats’ astute and always fascinating staging to a remarkable three-person acting ensemble who portray the original brothers, their heirs, and others including women who became enmeshed in the company.

"Stefano Massini’s Tony Award-winning drama, THE LEHMAN TRILOGY... a scintillating and witty family drama but also a potentially unsettling experience for the discerning audience...a commanding and powerful theatrical experience, dominated by the stellar and captivating performances of Josh Clark (Henry Lehman), Michael Stewart Allen (Emanuel), and Michael Kary (Mayer)... The quality and impact of its production is heightened by the outstanding performances of its cast. It is, in the end, a distinctively and thought-provoking American morality tale."  - Herbert Paine, Broadway World (click here to read the complete review)
