Photo Coverage: Opening Night at Assassins

Assassins opened on Thursday night, April 22nd at Studio 54 and then celebrated the opening at the China Club. BroadwayWorld was there to cover it!

Assassins is a darkly comic musical exploring the minds of Presidential assassins and attemptors, among them John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley, and the lesser known Charles Guiteau, Samuel Byck and Squeaky Fromme.

Some had very specific motivations, others' intentions were muddled. All changed the course of U.S. history, and, this musical suggests, added to our unsettling national obsession with celebrity.
