Book by John Weidman

Staged and Directed by Michael Strassen

Musical Supervision Chris Mundy

Musical Direction by Michael Bradely

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.
