Maybe the most controversial Broadway musical ever written, Assassins shoots to thrill and rarely misses. The great genius of contemporary musical theater, creator of Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods and Company, Stephen Sondheim leads audiences on a tuneful revue of presidential assassins and would-be killers from John Wilkes Booth to John Hinckley. This darkly comic journey takes the form of a carnival game, where the sounds of each era accompany riveting portrayals of history's most impassioned and deranged. Thought-provoking and darkly delightful, Assassins won five Tony Awards in its first revival on Broadway. Now ACT presents a new staging of this theatrical tour de force at Falls Theatre.
