Assassins: The Musical

Amidst the lurid debris of a traveling carnival, a proprietor invites nine would-be heroes to step up to the mark and hit a target in return for a glittering prize. As he hands out guns with a glib invitation, “c’mere and kill a president”, we are introduced to a collection of America’s most disturbing characters. One by one we uncover the passion and rage that inspired their bloody acts and are forced to examine the horrifying dark side of the much-touted right to happiness and the danger of an American dream.

One of the most innovative musicals ever written (and rarely produced), Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s killer black comedy takes a provocative lens to the dreams, distortions and delusions of nine infamous Americans.
