Following the successful transfer to the Menier Chocolate Factory of the New York Production of Road Show in 2011, the Union Theatre is now creating the first ever UK production of Sondheim‘s show.
From the Union Theatre: “At the turn of the last century old Pa Meisner sends his sons, the charming and ruthless Wilson and the thoughtful unambitious Addison off to make their fortune.
The ill matched pair embark of the story of their lifetime across the U.S. stopping off at some of the key moments which shaped modern America.
A moving story of love, antagonism and reconciliation between two brothers, events in Road Show mirror a mighty nation in transition.
Prominently featuring a romance between Addison and an idealistic young male artist Road Show also includes Sondheim’s first openly gay characters and one of his most haunting love songs, notably sung by one man to another.
