Description

Stephen Sondheim’s most thought provoking, bold and original musical explores a dark and funny side of the American experience. Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written. This most American musical lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish rollercoaster ride where the assassins meet, interact and, in an intense final scene, inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream. You’ll never look at musicals the same way! Adult content. Directed by David Anthony Blair.
