‘Assassins’ comes to Spinning Tree

“Sidesplitting and sobering in equal measure, this is the most provocative musical in years.”
-LA Times
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by John Weidman
Directed by Michael Grayman-Parkhurst
Music direction by Gary Green
2004 Tony Award: Best Musical Revival

Widely considered the most controversial musical ever written, ASSASSINS premiered off-Broadway in 1990 at Playwrights Horizons. A unique vision of American history told through imagined interactions between antiheroes

from John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald. 
Sondheim: “If I were asked to name the show that comes the closest to my expectations for it, the answer would be ASSASSINS. Certainly, John’s (Weidman) book does… As far as I’m concerned, the show is perfect. Immodest that may sound, but I’m ready to argue it with anybody.”
ASSASSINS is recommended for mature audiences.
