United in states of disillusionment and alienation, nine men and women emerge from The Shadows of the 19th and 20th centuries to take what they believe is their best-and only-shot at the American Dream. Fueled by our national populism in politics and in song, this Tony Award-winning musical masterpiece is a bone-chilling thrill ride through U.S. history.
Assassins is the second of Yale Rep's two Will Power! productions this season. The run includes 10:15AM performances on April 4 and 6, available only to high school groups. For information on Will Power! performances, please contact Roger-Paul Snell at email@example.com.
Assassins is supported in part by a generous gift from The Ted & Mary Jo Shen Charitable Gift Fund.
