The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County and Zoetic Stage are proud to present the Miami premiere of ASSASSINS, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning revue-style musical based on the men and women who have attempted, successfully or not, to assassinate American presidents. Playing January 30 – February 23, 2014 in the intimate Carnival Studio Theater (Ziff Ballet Opera House), ASSASSINS continues the Arsht Center’s highly acclaimed 2013-2014 Theater Up Close Series which features artistic collaborations from stellar local theater ensembles and nationally acclaimed theater companies.
Directed by Zoetic Stage artistic director and Silver Palm Award winner Stuart Meltzer and featuring an all-local cast, ASSASSINS looks at the lives, loves and lunacy of nine American assassins including John Wilkes Booth (Nicholas Richberg), Charles Guiteau (Gabriel Zenone), Leon Czolgosz (Nick Duckart), Giuseppe Zangara (Henry Gainza), Lee Harvey Oswald (Chris Crawford), Samuel Byck (Chaz Mena), John Hinckley (Clay Cartland), Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme (Lindsey Forgey) and Sara Jane Moore (Irene Adjan). Both serious and satirical, the musical asks what hunger drove these people to their actions and what binds them all together.
Tickets to ASSASSINS are $45*, and may be purchased now through the Adrienne Arsht Center box office by calling (305) 949-6722 or online at www.arshtcenter.org.
