Step right up and take a spin on a rollercoaster ride into the dark side of the American dream. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, creating a world in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts.
A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines intelligent, stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a sweeping, darkly comic, and timely tale of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it. Bold, original and alarmingly funny, Assassins might be the most controversial musical ever written.
