Classic Stage Company begins the 2021-2022 off-Broadway season with a revival of Stephen Sondheim & John Weidman's musical Assassins, directed by John Doyle. Assassins begins performances on November 2, ahead of a November 14 opening. Assassins tickets in New York are on sale soon.
A journey through the dark side of the American dream, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Tony-winning musical Assassins explores the lives of nine men and women who either killed (or tried to kill) one of the Presidents of the United States. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald and beyond, the stories of our country’s most successful and would-be assassins intersect in unexpected ways, creating a powerful, yet unnervingly funny look at some of the most shocking moments in US history.
