Why See Road Show?
From Stephen Sondheim
Part of New York City center's Off-Center season, this staged musical returns one of Stephen Sondheim's most overlooked efforts to the stage. Road Show follows the adventures of brothers Addison and Wilson Mizner as they journey across early 20th Century America in search of fame and fortune, taking in everything from the gold rush in the Yukon to the real estate boom of the 1920s. The book for this bouncy musical comes courtesy of frequent Sondheim collaborator John Weidman (Anything Goes, Assassins).
Road Show premiered Off-Broadway in 1999 with Nathan Lane in the cast, and has enjoyed subsequent production in both Chicago and London. The most recent New York staging was in 2008 by The Public.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

This is theatrical storytelling so assured and involving it's hard to imagine anyone not being mesmerized.
