Time Out says
The great Tom Stoppard returns with a drama about the old Jewish quarter of Vienna
There was an 11-year gap between the last two Tom Stoppard plays, so it wasn’t unreasonable to wonder if the 81-year-old theatre legend would actually get around to writing another. But here it is: following 2015’s so-so National Theatre outing ‘The Hard Problem’, here’s something that sounds much more like classic Stoppard. ‘Leopoldstadt’ is about the titular Jewish quarter of Vienna and follows it from its heyday as a haven for the Jews of Europe to the clampdown of the Nazi regime. Produced buy Sonia Friedman, it will be directed by Patrick Marber, who clearly impressed Stoppard with his recent revival of the playwright’s ‘Travesties’.
