A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Stephen Sondheim’s signature blend of intelligent lyrics and stunning music with a panoramic story of our nation’s culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it. The musical provides a glimpse into the psychology of America’s four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny, Assassins has been called “the most controversial musical ever written.”
