This darkly comic and compelling look at the lives, loves and legacies of nine presidential assassins -- including John Wilkes Booth, Squeaky Fromme and Lee Harvey Oswald -- takes a warped but tuneful tour through history, as it explores the dark underbelly of the American Dream.
As the Tony-winning 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 the part our celebrity culture plays in creating these monsters, while Sondheim's score reflects a variety of uniquely American genres, from folk to ragtime and beyond.
