Overview

Overview

At what point does the pursuit of the American Dream become an empty enterprise? Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Road Show is a larger-than-life account of two brothers—schemer Wilson Mizner and his more thoughtful sibling Addison—who are inspired, by their dying father, to stake their claim on a piece of the world. Set during the Alaskan gold rush and the Florida real estate boom of the early 1900s, and loosely based on a true story, follow the Mizner brothers on their ambitious and ultimately ill-fated quest for gold.

Road Show is part of the 2019 Encores! Off-Center season along with Promenade and Working: A Musical. These three seldom-performing gems each explore and re-examine the concept of the American Dream. Read more
