Part vaudeville extravaganza, part exposé – and wholly electrifying, “Assassins” reveals uneasy truths about the American Dream. Winner of five Tony Awards, it delves into the personalities behind nine individuals who attempted to assassinate a President of the United States. Hugely resonant in today’s celebrity-obsessed society, the story is peopled with desperate characters intent on making their mark. This is an unforgettable musical that explores the thoughts, motives, and madness of would-be assassins with a riveting Sondheim score.
