Actors Cabaret of Eugene presents what is perhaps one of the most unique and controversial musicals ever written; Stephen Sondheim’s ASSASSINS! ASSASSINS lays bare the lives of the nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States. A multiple Tony Award winning theatrical tour-de-force, ASSASSINS combines stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation’s culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it. Bold, original and alarmingly funny, ASSASSINS bends the rules of time and space in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream. See ASSASSINS onstage at Actors Cabaret of Eugene and experience the power of live theater!
Fans of musical theater rate this as a “must see” musical. Stephen Sondheim’s music and lyrics are brilliant, and the book by John Weidman is intelligent and unexpectedly funny. Definitely a one of a kind theatrical event!
Note: Assassins contains strong language and depicts the use of weapons. It’s not a musical for younger children.
