Road Show

At what point does the pursuit of the American Dream become an empty enterprise? Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's Road Show is a larger-than-life account of the Mizner brothers during the Alaskan gold rush and the Florida real estate boom of the early 1900s. Loosely based on a true story, follow Addison and Wilson Mizner on their ambitious and, ultimately, ill-fated quest for gold.

When he passed on at age 60 in 1933, Addison Mizner was best known as the architect whose Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean style helped define the emerging visual culture of South Florida. When his younger brother Wilson Mizner died two months later, he was best known as a raconteur whose name could occasionally be found among the writing credits of a Broadway play or Hollywood feature.
