Assassins

by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman

In the glitteringly dark musical by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman about Americans who dream of killing their country’s presidents…Mr. Sondheim and Mr. Weidman pose the question that arises in many people’s minds when they read accounts of shocking, irrational crimes: ”Why would someone do that?” A very impressive achievement…Mr. Sondheim’s astonishing score takes staples of American folk, pop and ceremonial music and turns them inside out…there is catharsis and even exhilaration in working your way through this tarnished looking-glass land.- Ben Brantley, the New York Times
