About the Show:

“We’re the other national anthem, folks, the ones that can’t get in to the ball park.
There’s Another National Anthem, folks, for those who never win… for the ones who might have been.”
– from “Another National Anthem”

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, embodied by America’s four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most unexpected musical ever written.
