Four Seasons Theatre
Stephen Sondheim's ASSASSINS
December 5-14, 2014 at The Playhouse at Overture
We open our 10th anniversary season with a show from the modern master of musical theatre, Stephen Sondheim. In ASSASSINS, Sondheim and book writer John Weidman create a murderous carnival game, parading across the stage malcontents who have attempted to assassinate a President. Reviewers have praised this revue with phrases like “a show both repellent and riveting” and “a stunning, gut-punch of a musical”. You’ll hear tastes of the American musical styles of each assassin’s era, all while the carnival barker beckons to you: “Hey, pal—I mean you—yeah. C'mere and kill a president.”
Performances are Thursday 12/11 at 7:30 pm, Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 pm, and Sundays at 2 pm at The Playhouse at Overture.
Tickets ($20-$35) are available at (608) 258-4141, in person at the Overture Center Box Office starting an hour and half before each performance, or online at overturecenter.org/events/assassins
