Music by Stephen Sondheim

Book by John Weidman

August 25 – September 17, 2017


If you think American politics is a dangerous place today, then you clearly haven’t met John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley, Jr., and “Squeaky” Fromme. This musical follows nine famous Presidential assassins and wannabe assassins as they share a stage and “spill their guts” about what drove them to such dreadful extremes.
