Move your little finger and you can change the world

See it if You like resonate smart lyrics like this one from The Gun Song. You like going down historical rabbit holes. Go see some of Bway’s finest.

If you're triggered by the sight and sound of guns (even prop replicas), it'd be wise to skip the Classic Stage Company's production of Stephen Sondheim's strange and stirring Assassins. Rifles and revolvers get plenty of play. That said, missing this show would be a shame — if you can snag a ticket. Set to open 19 months ago but...
