Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by John Weidman

Show Description:
On the eve of the 2016 Presidential election, Near West's Summer Teen/Young Adult Theater, Ages 16-25, presents Stephen Sondheim's examination of the American Dream, the haves and the have-nots, and guns.

A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim’s signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music, with a panoramic story of our nation’s culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America’s four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most unexpected musical ever written.
