Stephen Sondheim and John Weidmans’ controversial musical, Assassins, scrutinizes the lives and motivations of nine individuals who killed (or tried to kill) various presidents of the United States. This multiple Tony Award-winning dark comedy explores the human need for acknowledgment versus the American need for celebrity, amplified by the frustrated desires of those who crossed a terrifying threshold.
