Photo Flash: First Look at Sam Button-Harrison, Edward Fraim and More in ASSASSINS

Billy Pacholski presents "Assassins," music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by John Weidman, at the Viaduct Theatre in Chicago, 3111 N. Western Ave. tonight, Oct. 10 - Nov. 10. "Assassins," directed by Pacholski, with music direction by Robert Ollis, begins previews tonight, Oct. 10; press opening is Oct. 12; the show runs through Nov. 10. For more information visit http://www.assassins-chicago.com.

Weaving together dream-like narratives of the assassinations and attempted assassinations of the U.S. presidents, Sondheim's Tony Award-winning musical comedy brings to light the pain of alienation, regret, and isolation that underlies each character's failure to achieve the American Dream. The New York Times hails "Assassins" as "an extraordinarily original piece of theater," and the LA Times says "Sondheim's killer musical comedy hits the mark…sidesplitting and sobering in equal measure, this is the most provocative musical in years."

Portraying the "Assassins" will be Sam Button-Harrison (The Balladeer/Lee Harvey Oswald), Nicholas Druzbanski (Samuel Byck), Joey Eovaldi (Billy), Edward Fraim (Charles Guiteau), Libby Lane (Sara Jane Moore), Aram Monisoff (Leon Czolgosz), Kiley Moore (Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme), Ed Rutherford (John Hinckley) , Michael Swisher (Proprietor), Kevin Webb (John Wilkes Booth) and Kris Hyland (Giuseppe Zangara. A talented ensemble including Morgan Glynn Briggs, Parker Guidry, Natalie June and Jameson Wentworth rounds out the cast.
