Great experience of an under performed musical. The intimate setting was perfect and the singing beautiful. Considering attending again with other friends.

Enjoyed the show in how it was presented and brought to its end. However, the gentleman playing John Wilkes Booth could not be heard most of the time from where I was sitting. I did enjoy the info that was listed on the pole outside the theater...continued

More Information


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.
