The assassination of John F. Kennedy has inspired countless theories about who really shot the president. Was Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone? Did he have help from the CIA? The Cuban government? The Soviets? This new stage play will open your mind to the intricacies and intrigue of one theory, posited by journalist Hillel Levin, that the Mafia was the real culprit in the crime of the century. Assassination Theater dramatizes conversations between Levin and an FBI agent, allowing viewers to see a dramatically different side of an event that has been seared into our national consciousness. Watch and wonder at the Museum of Broadcast Communications.
The performance running time is 2 hours and 15 minutes, including a 15 minute intermission.
