Arlington's Signature Theatre has announced the cast of Road Show, its 26th Stephen Sondheim production. The musical will star Josh Lamon (Finding Neverland), Noah Racey (Curtains) and Sherri L. Edelen (Signature’s Cake Off, Gypsy).

Road Show, Sondheim and John Weidman’s musical about the real-life Mizner brothers, will begin performances Feb. 16 in Signature Theatre’s intimate MAX Theatre. Directed by Gary Griffin of Broadway's Honeymoon in Vegas, the show will run through March 13.

Griffin's production premiered at Chicago's Shakespeare Theater in 2014; watch highlights below.

"Road Show marks the 26th production of a Sondheim musical at Signature," said Eric Schaeffer, Signature Theatre artistic director, in a press statement. "I'm thrilled that Gary Griffin is bringing his acclaimed staging of Sondheim's latest musical to Signature. His unique take on this show, which was a critically-acclaimed hit in Chicago, promises to delight audiences."

The cast also includes Erin Driscoll (Signature’s Sunday in the Park with George), Stefan Kempski, Jason Labrador, Jake Mahler (Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s Road Show), Dan Manning (Broadway’s Ragtime), Angela Miller (Signature’s Sunday in the Park with George), Matt Schleigh (Ford’s Freedom’s Song) and Bobby Smith (Signature’s West Side Story, The Fix).

The creative team includes musical direction by Jon Kalbfleisch; scenic design by Scott Davis; costume design by Ivania Stack; lighting design by Joel Sheir; sound design by Lane Elms; wig design by Anne Nesmith; production stage manager Kerry Epstein; and assistant stage manager Kristen Harris. The musical features music and lyrics by Sondheim and a book by Weidman.

Based on the real-life Mizner siblings, Road Show follows their quest for the elusive American dream. "From the Klondike gold rush to India, Hawaii, Guatemala, New York and finally the real-estate boon of Florida’s Boca Raton," state press notes, "the dazzling pace scours not only the map, but also forty years of boom-and-bust and brotherly love (or hate)."

Tickets are now available by visiting sigtheatre.org or calling (703) 820-9771. Signature Theatre is located at 4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington, VA.
