The original cast of the Roundabout Theatre Company's 2004 Tony Award-winning production of the Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman musical Assassins will reunite for a benefit concert at Studio 54 on Monday, December 3. Joe Mantello will once again direct, with musical direction by Paul Gemignani.

The concert stars Becky Ann Baker (Sara Jane Moore), James Barbour (Leon Czolgosz), Mario Cantone (Samuel Byck), Michael Cerveris (John Wilkes Booth), Mary Catherine Garrison (Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme), Alexander Gemignani (John Hinckley), Neil Patrick Harris (Balladeer/Lee Harvey Oswald), Marc Kudisch (Proprietor), Jeffrey Kuhn (Giuseppe Zangara), and Denis O'Hare (Charles Guiteau).

The company will also include ensemble cast members from the original 2004 production: Merwin Foard, Eamon Foley, Ken Krugman, Anne L. Nathan, Chris Peluso, Brandon Wardell, and Sally Wilfert.

Assassins brings to the stage a (shooting) gallery of some of history's most notorious players - the men and women who attempted to kill American Presidents. Both serious and satirical, the musical asks what hunger drove these people to their actions and what binds them all together.

Beginning August 21, tax-deductible benefit tickets will be available by calling Roundabout's Development Office at 212-719-9393.
