From the brilliant mind of Stephen Sondheim to the stage of The 5 & Dime comes Assassins, a twisted musical that lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States. Travel along as John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, and other assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact, and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream. Explore the dark side of the American experience as these characters bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride.
A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it. Bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny, Assassins is arguably the most controversial musical ever written.
