We are honored to welcome Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman in their Public Theater debut with their musical, Road Show. Spanning 40 years from the Alaskan Gold Rush to the Florida real estate boom in the ‘30s, Road Show is the story of two brothers whose quest for the American dream turns into a test of morality and judgment that changes their lives in unexpected ways. Director John Doyle (Sweeney Todd on Broadway), acclaimed for re-imagining Sondheim’s works, joins Weidman and Sondheim in exploring some of the great American issues: real estate, capitalism and crooks.
Road Show will be performed without an intermission. Running time appx. 105 minutes. Warning: Haze will be used in this production.
