Of all the many versions of the King Arthur legend, Camelot, the stage musical by Lerner and Loewe (My Fair Lady, Brigadoon, Gigi), remains one of the most popular. Pageantry, adventure and some of the most gorgeous melodies of the past century combine in this four-time Tony Award-winning show about the tumultuous love triangle between King Arthur, Queen Guenevere and Sir Lancelot. Coinciding with the 50-year anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy, New Repertory Theatre's production spotlights how human passion and need can threaten youthful idealism and a desire to create a better social order.

My first visit to the Watertown Arsenal Center for the Arts. Nice little theatre, which seats maybe 80 to 100. All seats good. This was the last performance. I thought the orchestra was too loud and a couple of the performers, especially "the proprietor", did not project enough. Otherwise I thought the performances were good. I didn't find the music of Assassins particularly memorable. I wasn't aware of one of the "assassins", Sam Byck. His performance was particularly excellent. When I got home I researched the assassins. Always wanted to see this play. Glad I went.
Assassins is a stunner.
Nominated for and awarded with every possible theatrical award both here and in Europe, the musical gathers together and examines the motivations of the men and women who assassinated or attempted to assassinate eight Presidents of the United States of America. They are a demented group of murderous misfits, torn in misery between their motives, their crimes and their world-wide bloodthirsty profiles. Fame has escaped them while history has imprisoned them in infamous frustration. They are obsessed, driven, mentally unbalanced and plagued with torment.
The musical is a comedy. The score borders on genius. The outcome is chilling.
