About this Event
Join us for our ever-popular series of theatre day trips from the JCCs. This fall, we will venture to the Bluma Appel Theatre to experience The Lehman Trilogy. An extraordinary play told in three parts about the lives of the infamous Lehman Brothers. After the performance, we will be joined by a special guest to converse about the Play.
Presented by the JCCs of Greater Toronto. We are proud and excited to offer this Tri-Campus initiative in partnership with the Miles Nadal JCC in downtown Toronto.
At this time, we will meet at the Theatre at 12:30 pm. If enough people show interest we will arrange a bus that picks up at all the JCCs. It is estimated to be 40 dollars per person to arrange a bus.

He is joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish – Lehman Brothers – spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy and triggers one of the largest financial crises in history. Featuring a cast of three playing the Lehman brothers, their sons and grandsons in an extraordinary feat of storytelling told in three parts on a single evening.
