The quest for celebrity, a sense of entitlement, an attempt to save the American Dream—the reasons presidential assassins give for their crimes are not necessarily the reasons they have at heart. Did John Wilkes Booth really target Lincoln because the Civil War left the South in shambles or was it because his own acting career was failing? How much is due to the lofty promises of Democracy and how much is due to personal malignancy and the fact that Mondays just stink?
Written by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman, the Tony-winning Assassins rewrites American history to place the four successful and five unsuccessful presidential assassins on stage together in order to get to the bottom of these questions. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, and the seven others meet in a one-act, revue-style dark comedy that explores their motivations and sees them feed off one another. And while the question marks keep rising, musical numbers link one era to the next, from the upbeat and quirky “Everybody’s Got the Right” to the comically catchy “Ballad of Booth.”
