Book by John Weidman Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States in a one-act historical “revusical” that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact, and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.
Assassins is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
Tickets: Adults - $24 | Students/Military - $20
