131 W 55th Street (btwn 6th & 7th)

A carnival ride through the history of political violence, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s 1990 musical Assassins looks right into the heart of American anger, providing sensational showstoppers for a gallery of U.S. presidential assassins ranging from John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald to Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme. Assassins offers an uncanny vision of where we are today, where we might be going, and whether everybody really has the right to their dreams.

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by John Weidman
Assassins is based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr.
Directed by Anne Kauffman
