‘Bounce’ pounces on cast, name

'Road Show' to star Cerveris, Gemignani

The upcoming Public Theater production of Stephen Sondheim-John Weidman tuner “Bounce” has set its cast and taken on a new title.

Michael Cerveris and Alexander Gemignani will star in “Road Show,” the musical formerly known as “Bounce” that will play Off Broadway’s Public this fall.

Cerveris (“Lovemusik”) and Gemignani (“Sunday in the Park With George”) previously appeared together in the 2005 Broadway revival of Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd,” helmed by John Doyle, who also directs “Road Show.” Thesps will play two brothers whose exploits take them across early 20th century America from Alaska to Florida.

Also in the cast are Alma Cuervo, Claybourne Elder, Tom Nelis, William Youmans and Kristine Zbornik, among others.

“Road Show” is the fourth moniker to be given to the Sondheim musical, which originated in a 1999 workshop version called “Wise Guys.” Offering was temporarily called “Gold!” In 2003, the tuner preemed as “Bounce” in Chicago and played the Kennedy Center later that year. Mixed critical reception from those outings stalled Broadway momentum for the show, which has never played Gotham.

Sondheim and book writer Weidman have continued to retool the musical in the past few years, prompting the latest title change.

“Road Show” runs Oct. 28-Dec. 28.
