Sidesplitting and sobering in equal measure, this is the most provocative musical in years.
Synopsis

What’s the outcome when The American Dream of success, celebrity, and free speech becomes warped in a madman’s mind?  In this highly thought-provoking musical, musical genius Stephen Sondheim and playwright John Weidman bend time and space to allow the nation’s nine successful and would-be assassins to meet, interact, and inspire each other to try to make their mark in the American history books. Using his signature blend of insightful lyrics and unforgettable music, Sondheim sheds a light on the peculiarly American phenomenon that is the presidential assassin.   This disturbing, amusing, and ultimately insightful look at American culture will inspire and terrify you.

THIS SHOW CONTAINS: Loud Blank and Recorded Gun Shots, Smoke Effects, Flashing Lights, Adult Content and Language, Graphic Images of Assassination.
