Assassins castPerformed as a revue in one act, ASSASSINS offers up nine sharply drawn sketches of people who killed presidents of the United States – or gave it their best shot. The winner of multiple TONY Awards, Sondheim’s glimmering and flavorful score gives a nod to the all-American sounds of Foster, Sousa, and Copland. It remains provocative, innovative, riveting, and timely as ever in this election year. Directed by USM’s Ed Reichert. Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by John Weidman.
