Get-rich-quick schemes, enterprising American ambition, spirited musical numbers—the latest production from Chicago Shakespeare Theater has all of that in store and more! Associate Artistic Director Gary Griffin is bringing yet another great show your way with Road Show, a musical that trails two brothers through a journey that is full of surprises. Whether you’re an avid fan of musicals or looking to experience one for the first time, this is the show for you to see!
Inspired by true events, Road Show, featuring the musical talents of Stephen Sondheim, follows brothers Addison and Wilson Mizner as they traverse the country in pursuit of their personal windfall. The audience is invited to join along in a journey that spans 40 years and encompasses everything from the Alaskan Gold Rush to the Florida real estate boom of the 1930s. The dreaming duo try a variety of get-rich-quick schemes in the hopes of achieving success, and while their lives are changed in unexpected ways, the brothers stick together through it all.
