Description

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.
