ASSASSINS is based on an idea by Charles Gilbert Jr.
Original orchestrations by Michael Starobin
Playwrights Horizons Inc., New York City, produced ASSASSINS off-Broadway in 1990
First Broadway production, 2004, Roundabout Theatre Company, Todd Haimes, Artistic Director

“Murder is a tawdry little crime. But when a president gets killed, when Julius Caesar got killed… he gets assassinated.”
A man sits in a storeroom on the sixth floor of a Book Depository in Texas in 1963, waiting for John F Kennedy’s motorcade to pass below. He rests his finger on the trigger, ready to join a line of men and women who have shot their way into the history books.
Assassins is a satirical and stylish look at why individuals reach for a gun when they feel their voice can’t be heard. Clever, funny and thought-provoking, this is a musical about the power of the President, the lure of celebrity and the failure of the American dream.
Created by the greatest living musical theatre writer, Stephen Sondheim, this multiple Tony Award-winning vaudeville-style show is a modern classic. Following universal acclaim for Sweet Charity, award-winning director Bill Buckhurst returns with another multi-talented cast.
