WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Declaration Of Independence states that every American has an unalienable right to the pursuit of happiness. From John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald to Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme and John Hinckley, Jr., the assassins of Stephen Sondheim's five-time Tony Award winning musical couldn't agree more.
Glitteringly dark, unflinchingly funny, and completely unapologetic, ASSASSINS bends time to bring together America's most notorious presidential assassins (some successful, some failed) for a rollicking journey through the underbelly of The American Dream, and asks us to consider what separates those who resort to violence from those who don't... After all, "Everybody's got the right to be happy."
