Broadway's Leopoldstadt Now Streams Online In Select Markets

The West End and Broadway hit Leopoldstadt, which recently announced a four-month extension at the Longacre Theatre, is now available to stream online in select markets.

Tom Stoppard’s play opened in October to rave reviews from New York critics. Set in Vienna throughout the 20th Century, Leopoldstadt follows a Jewish family over the span of more than 50 years as their home, their city and the world undergo multiple historic changes.

The play was filmed live in 2021 with the original London cast, as part of the National Theatre Live program. Now, it makes its way to the "NT at Home" streaming platform for the first time.

Here's how to stream Leopoldstadt now:



Set in Vienna, the play takes its title from the Jewish quarter. This passionate drama of love and endurance begins in the last days of 1899 and follows one extended family deep into the heart of the 20th century. Full of his customary wit and beauty, Stoppard’s late work spans fifty years of time over two hours.

Streaming rights for Leopoldstadt have been negotiated with producer Sonia Friedman, making the play available in full through "National Theatre at Home". The play is streaming in most markets (Europe & ROW) but is not currently available in the United States due to the running Broadway production.

Leopoldstadt recently opened on Broadway to rave reviews. In his review for Deadline Magazine, Greg Evans said:: "The great playwright Tom Stoppard and his simpatico director Patrick Marber make a lasting gift of remembrance in the brilliant, gorgeous and devastating new play Leopoldstadt, opening tonight at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre. But it’s a gift that comes with strings, ropes even, the author seems to be warning us: There’s burden attached to memory, and pain, and, above all, responsibility – duty, even – that accompanies every yellowed snapshot in an old family album and every fading face that once seemed fixed with such clarity."



Leopoldstadt's Broadway and West End creative team includes scenic design by Richard Hudson (The Lion King), costume design by Brigitte Reiffenstuel, lighting design by Neil Austin (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Company), sound and original music by Tony Award winner Adam Cork (Red, Travesties), and video design by Isaac Madge.

The National Theatre launched its streaming platform, "National Theatre at Home" in 2020 as an on-demand streaming service featuring a number of productions filmed as part of its National Theatre Live program. Among the titles on the platform are Angels in America (Broadway and West End revival), War Horse (original London production), Tom Hiddleston's Coriolanus, Medea with Helen McCrory, and Mosquitos with Olivia Colman.
