Assassins

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by John Weidman
based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr

Directed by Kristin Hughes
Music Direction by Bethany Aiken
Vocal Direction by Stephen Peters

Assassins pulls nine individuals from across history who assassinated – or who attempted to assassinate – American presidents into a series of encounters and brilliant songs that explore what inspires their actions. Using these encounters (some farcical, some dark), this musical examines the uniquely and horrifyingly American violence that leads outsiders to seek redress by raising arms against the leader of their country.
