Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's musical Assassins, which looks at the men and women who have either killed or attempted to kill past Presidents of the United States, will receive an off-Broadway revival next year at Classic Stage Company.

CSC Artistic Director John Doyle will direct the musical, marking his third collaboration with Sondheim and Weidman, following Road Show at the Public Theater and Pacific Overtures at CSC. The show will run April-June 2020.

The 2019-2020 season at Classic Stage will also include a Doyle-directed Macbeth (October-December 2019), as well as repertory productions of plays based on Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (January-March 2020).

Additional information will be announced in the coming months.
