Summary: Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bring together the historical figures of the four successful assassins of U.S. presidents and five more who attempted to assassinate a president. In a thoughtful, provoking, and often funny ninety-minute musical, Sondheim and Weidman muse on American rights and freedoms and how these assassins felt they were denied rights and turned those feelings violently toward a national stage. The show also demonstrates how America’s violent criminals study and copycat earlier crimes, especially in shootings, and prefer notoriety to invisibility, as the nine assassins interact in the fictional stage space.

Cast: Will Snyder as John Wilkes Booth; Patrick Jones as Charles Guiteau; Rocky Nardone as Leon Czolgosz; Jacob Anspach as Giuseppe Zangara; Brett Hammes as Lee Harvey Oswald and Balladeer; Josh DeBell as Sam Byck; Annie Levine as Squeaky Froome; Kelsey Roberts as Sarah Jane Moore; Ben Bernstein as John Hinckley; Tristan Strasser as Proprietor; Kat Berton as Emma Goldman and others; Carl Treiber as David Herold and others; Mick Elliott as Billy Moore and others; and Sydney Lyons as Housewife and others.
