A Regan de Wynter Production’s ASSASSINS which is music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by John Weidman, staged and directed by Michael Strassen, musical supervision Chris Mundy and musical direction by Michael Bradely will be runing at Union Theatre from 30th June – 24th July 2010.
Following last years critically acclaimed and sell out production of Stephen Sondheim’s ‘Company’, The Union Theatre is proud to present ‘Assassins’ to celebrate the 80th Birthday year of Stephen Sondheim.
This musical, with a book by John Weidman, explores the history of presidential assassination in America, from John Wilkes Booth to John Hinckley, Jr. Assassins climaxes in a surreal sequence where the assassins convince Lee Harvey Oswald that his act is the only way he will connect — with them, with history, and with the world.
A cult musical with dark undertones examining the politically driven, the desperate and the down right ‘insane’ who have or have tried to kill an American President often with hilarious results. Assassins is not for the faint hearted.
