About this show

Bold, original, surreal, disturbing, and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written. Exploring the dark side of the American experience, it lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or attempted to assassinate a President of the United States. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, creators Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking audiences on a rollercoaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and ultimately inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream. Assassins is a thrilling musical featuring a brilliant, melodic score which follows American music throughout the ages, from folk to ragtime to 1970s soft rock. Groups: 312-423-6612
