Enjoy a special offer on the European premiere of Stephen Sondheim’s new musical Road Show at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
Road Show stars American TV and stage actor David Bedella (Jerry Springer – The Opera), Michael Jibson (Our House), Jon Robyns (Avenue Q) and Gillian Bevan (Doctors).
Set in the early part of the twentieth-century, Road Show is based on the fascinating real-life story of two brothers, Addison and Wilson Mizner. Both are outrageous fortune seekers and their boom-and-bust story stretches from the Klondike and Alaskan Gold Rushes to managing boxers, holding up restaurants, running gambling dens, retailing on Fifth Avenue, owning New York hotels, writing Broadway plays and Hollywood screenplays and trying to capitalise on the great Florida land boom. Irving Berlin started, but did not finish, a musical based on Wilson Mizner’s life.
The show is directed and designed by the John Doyle, and features a book by John Weidman.
