On a cold September morning in 1844, a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside. Dreaming of a new life in a new world, he is joined by his two brothers. An American epic begins — 163 years later, the firm they establish, Lehman Brothers, spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.

The Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor is participating in the “National Theatre Live in HD series;” this time featuring a live performance of The Lehman Triology in London. The broadcast will be at 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13.

Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles, who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and their grandsons.

The event is a co-production of the National Theatre and Neal Street Productions; co-presented with the Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty, Ann Arbor.
