Assassins archiveAward winning musical. Assassins is a twisted celebration of America, "a land where any boy can grow up to kill a president". This show explores the motives of nine individuals who attempt to assassinate American presidents. Through Sondheim's witty lyrics and emotive score, it exposes a sinister underside to the American Dream. Compelling, innovative and yet disturbingly funny, this is one of the most controversial musicals ever written.


Music: Stephen Sondheim
Book by: John Weidman
