This darkly-comic and compelling look at the lives, loves and legacies of nine presidential assassins, including John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald, is a warped and tuneful tour through history. Stephen Sondheim's "Assassins" explores the dark underbelly of the American Dream. As the musical fleshes out the characters of the killers (or would-be killers), the revue-style portrayal compels the audience to consider their motivations and the part American culture plays in creating these monsters. The music varies to reflect the popular music in the era of each character portrayed.
