A look at the darker side of our history, Assassins is the stories of nine people who have killed or attempted to kill an American President. In a land where freedom creates vulnerability, notorious characters like John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, Squeaky Fromme and John Hinckley are able to plan the ultimate crime. The most distinguished composer of our time renders chilling portraits of the American dream in this rarely produced contemporary musical.
