Assassins

Music & Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
Directed by: James Millar
Music Director: David King
Performed by: 3rd year Music Theatre students

This revue-style musical lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated, or tried to assassinate, the President of the United States. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Assassins bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a roller coaster ride in which assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream. Bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny, Assassins is one of the most important and controversial musicals ever written.
