    "And all you have to do is squeeze your little finger.
    Ease your little finger - you can change the world."

    A darkly humorous blend of fiction and history, conspiracy and truth, Stephen Sondheim's Assassins depicts the disturbing lives of the nine individuals who have attempted to or successfully assassinated American Presidents.

    Feeling betrayed by the broken promises of their ideal nation, they decide to strike out against its ultimate symbol: the President. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, the rules of time and place are bent as these disillusioned misfits meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the 'American Dream'.

    This funny yet bleak "revusical" combines lyrical ingenuity with multiple musical styles to explore the perverse motivations and characters behind these history-defining acts.
