BirdLand Theatre with Talk Is Free Theatre Presents:
Conceivably the most controversial musical ever written.
BirdLand Theatre, winner of 5 Dora Awards for The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, will première the bold, original, surreal, thought provoking and alarmingly funny musical Assassins. Adam Brazier will direct John Weidman and Stephen Sondheim’s critically acclaimed musical, which runs from Thursday, February 4th to Saturday, February 20th, 2010 at The Theatre Centre.
Part vaudeville extravaganza, part exposé, and wholly electrifying, Assassins is a dark and controversial Tony Award-winning musical about the American dream gone awry. This wickedly comic one-act historical “revusical” lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated, or tried to assassinate, various presidents of the United States. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Sondheim and Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish rollercoaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and in an intense final scene inspire each other to harrowing acts all in the name of the American Dream.
