Assassins, February 17 – 26, 2011, Theatre Sheridan

Theatre Sheridan Productions

This brilliant Stephen Sondheim musical explores the disintegration of the ‘American Dream’ where privilege degenerates into self-entitlement. The action takes place in a fairground shooting gallery. A collection of misfits explores the notion of notoriety achieved through assassination.

Director: Tricia Lackey

Choreographer: Anthony MacPherson

Musical Director: Craig Fair

Her inevitable, cataclysmic confrontation with ...
