Four Seasons Theatre begins our 10th anniversary season with a show from the modern master of musical theatre, Stephen Sondheim. A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, ASSASSINS combines Sondheim’s signature blend of intelligent lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation’s culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it. Sondheim and book writer John Weidman create a murderous carnival game, parading across the stage misfits and malcontents who have attempted to assassinate a President. Reviewers have praised this revue with phrases like “a show both repellent and riveting” and “a stunning, gut-punch of a musical”. You’ll hear tastes of the American musical styles of each assassin’s era, all while the carnival barker beckons to you: “Hey, pal—I mean you—yeah. C’mere and kill a president.”
