Howard Miller takes a look at The Lehman Trilogy:
Once upon a time, there were three brothers who came to America in the mid-1800s from their native Bavaria and settled in Montgomery, Alabama. Their names were Heyum, Mendel, and Mayer Lehmann. Through the usual combination of immigration screw-ups and assimilation, they soon became known as Henry, Emanuel, and (still) Mayer Lehman: The Lehman Brothers. They and their story are the subjects of The Lehman Trilogy, opening tonight at the Nederlander Theatre in a thrilling production that is as entertaining and as veracious as a well-told American tall tale about Pecos Bill or Paul Bunyan.
