A gentle prod at stereotypical gender roles, this light-hearted send-up is a hilarious twist on the classic tale. This Cinderella is no frilly Miss. "She neither pines nor whines and she's no slouch with a slightly risqué put-down either, particularly within the context of Rudie and DeCarlo's trademark Gilbert & Sullivan-style comic lyrics." (LA TIMES) Prince Charming would give anything to be loved for himself, not the icon society claims he must be. Added delights are the outrageously playful period costumes and the heart-warming romance that blooms with the assistance of a glass slipper, a feather duster, a truly magical wand and a glass of champagne to toast finding your true love just by being who you are.

Assassins combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America's four successful and five would-be presidential assassins.

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.
