Sondheim's Road Show headed for Menier Chocolate Factory next year

As reported by TheatreSpy back in June  Stephen Sondheim & John Weidman’s Road Show will be directed by John Doyle (Sweeney Todd and Company on Broadway) and presented at the Menier Chocolate Factory next year

Road Show is the third collaboration between Sondheim and book writer John Weidman (Pacific Overtures and Assassins), but is not their first attempt with this material which has also been called Gold, Wise Guys and Bounce.

It tells the story of brothers Addison and Wilson Mizner and their adventures across America from the Alaskan Gold Rush to the Florida property boom in the 1930s.

The production opened in Off-Broadway’s Public Theatre in 2008 when it was directed by the Scot John Doyle.
