ASSASSINS, a musical by Stephen Sondheim & John Weidman
PRESENTED BY STUDIO THEATRE OF BATH
This show is not recommended for children.
A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America's four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.
Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical "revusical" that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman, bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.
Studio Theatre of Bath is pleased to announce the cast of Stephen Sondheim's "Assassins". The production will be directed by John Willey and music directed by Courtney Babbidge. Performances will be two weekends, October 12-21 at the Chocolate Church Arts Center in Bath, Maine.
