Encores! Off-Center


  • Mainstage
  • Jul 12—15

  • Overview

    A carnival ride through the history of political violence, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s 1990 musical Assassins looks right into the heart of American anger, providing sensational showstoppers for a gallery of U.S. presidential assassins ranging from John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald to Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme. Assassins offers an uncanny vision of where we are today, where we might be going, and whether everybody really has the right to their dreams.

    Free for that evening’s ticket holders, The Lobby Project performance for Assassins will take place in the Grand Tier lobby one hour before select performances.

    is part of the 2017 Encores! Off-Center season, which also includes The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin and Really Rosie.
