What is it about?

This most American of musicals lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated, or tried to assassinate, the President of the United States, in a 95-minute historical staging that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, composer Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, A Little Night Music) and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a wild journey in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact, and become infamous.

ASSASSINS is "perhaps Sondheim's sharpest work - a knockout show" according to Newsweek.

ASSASSINS contains a highly melodic score which pastiches American music throughout the ages, from folk to ragtime to 1970s rock. While Stephen Sondheim's unique music infuses the score, echoes of American composers such as Stephen Foster, Aaron Copeland, and John Phillip Sousa can be heard.

ASSASSINS was originally presented off-Broadway in 1990 by Playwrites Horizons. The highly anticipated Broadway premier of ASSASSINS will be presented by The Roundabout Theatre Company in New York City, opening April 26th for a nearly sold-out run in The Big Apple.
