The 2020 London production of Leopoldstadt reunited Stoppard, Marber, and producer Sonia Friedman, who last collaborated on Travesties in 2017. Leopoldstadt will be Stoppard's 19th play to have a Broadway run; four of his plays have received the Tony for Best Play.
Leopoldstadt is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Roy Furman, and Lorne Michaels.
