With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by John Weidman, Assassins
takes a detailed look into the motivations and political cultures of the time, of individuals who
attempted to assassinate U.S. Presidents.
Assassins won multiple Tony Awards, and has
been an audience favorite since its successful Off-Broadway run in 1990. It has very
common themes strung throughout, and really makes one ponder about how the
extraordinary freedom of living in the U.S. has created a land where accidents of all kinds
can happen, and how any kid can grow up to be the President...or a killer.
