Ritz Theater

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by John Weidman
Directed by Peter Rothstein
Music Direction by Jason Hansen

Featuring: Dieter Bierbrauer, Shinah Brashears, James Detmar, Benjamin Dutcher, Mario Esteb, Tyler Michaels, Eric Morris, Rodolfo Nieto, Sara Ochs, Matt Riehle, and Evan Tyler Wilson

A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Stephen Sondheim’s signature blend of intelligent lyrics and stunning music with a panoramic story of our nation’s culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it. The musical provides a glimpse into the psychology of America’s four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny, Assassins has been called “the most controversial musical ever written.”
