“Everybody’s got the right to their dreams!”
A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de- force, this explosive musical examines the lives of those who committed—or attempted to commit—the ultimate crime: the assassination of an American president. Boldly cutting-edge and alarmingly funny, the show freely mixes characters from different periods in a kaleidoscopic, hallucinatory revue. With Sondheim’s signature blend of beautiful music and dazzling lyrics, this show entertains while it examines the sense of entitlement and yearning for fame that motivates an unthinkable act.
Be advised – loud sound effects and strobe lighting effects will be used during this production.
