* World Premiere

Assassins (2016)
Welcome to the carnival, where everybody has the right to be happy! In this tawdry carnival’s shooting gallery, you’ll find yourself in the company of some of the most notorious figures in American history—the assassins who tried (and in some cases succeeded) to kill the president. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, John Hinkley, and others reveal the stories of their troubled lives and deadly deeds. Created by one of the undisputed masters of musical theatre, Stephen Sondheim, this powerful work is by turns funny, dark, and haunting.
