SYNOPSIS

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

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 “revisal” that explores the dark side of the American experience.  From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Stephen Sondheim bends the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish rollercoaster 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.
