We have a lot of offers on our home page for musicals and plays in Boston, New York and Chicago at big discounts, even half price.
Join Boston University’s College of Fine Arts – known for the high quality of their productions – for a darkly-comic and compelling look at the lives, loves and legacies of nine presidential assassins, including John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald.
A warped and tuneful tour through history, Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins explores the dark underbelly of the American Dream. As the musical fleshes out the characters of the killers (or would-be killers) within the framework of a grisly carnival game, the revue-style portrayal compels the audience to consider their motivations and the part American culture plays in creating these monsters.
The music varies to reflect the popular music in the era of each character portrayed. The College of Fine Arts presents Sondheim’s Tony-winning musical as the culminating event in its year-long examination of the theme of violence.

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by John Weidman; Jim Petosa, director; Matthew Stern, music director. The legendary Sondheim explores the hearts and minds that fill the gallery of America’s most famous assassins, including John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald, in a stunning satire of the anarchic political violence that tragically persists at the core of our culture. As the culminating event in the College’s year-long examination of the theme of violence, Assassins brims with a particularly urgent energy. Assassins runs May 4-10. Presented by the Boston University College of Fine Arts.
