About Assassins

The Chocolate Factory presents the musical Assassins by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman.This multi-Tony Award-winning musical is directed by Jamie Lloyd and features an outstanding cast including Catherine Tate as Sara Jane Moore and Andy Nyman as Charles Guiteau.

Thirteen people have tried to kill the president of the United States. Four have succeeded. These murderers and would-be murderers are generally dismissed as maniacs and misfits who have little in common with each other, and nothing in common with the rest of us. 

Assassins suggests otherwise, casting the killers as participants in a murderous carnival game, with Sondheim's intelligent lyrics and music appropriate to each Assassin's era propelling the story. It's riveting and intense.
