The third collaboration between Weidman and Sondheim (Assassins, Pacific Overtures), Road Show is a freewheeling musical travelogue of the optimism and opportunism of the early twentieth century through the eyes of two ambitious, eccentric yet playfully charming brothers.
Based on the real-life Mizner siblings, Road Show follows the dreamer and the schemer’s quest for the ever elusive, shape-shifting American dream. From the Klondike gold rush to India, Hawaii, Guatemala, New York and finally the real-estate boom of Florida’s Boca Raton, the dazzling pace scours not only the map, but also forty years of boom-and-bust and brotherly love (or hate).
For Signature’s 26th Sondheim production, we welcome back director Gary Griffin (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum) with his acclaimed Chicago Shakespeare Theater staging of Road Show.
“Funny, fierce, lean and heartbreaking.” —Chicago Sun-Times

A rare and welcome revival.
A pristine production.
Nobody does Sondheim better than Signature Theatre! So run and buy tickets!
See it for Sondheim’s music, tons of laughs and a rollicking good tale of fame and fortune won and lost in the quest for the American dream.
Road Show should not be missed.
An excellent cast.
