Photos: First Look at ASSASSINS at Classic Stage Company

The production of the Sondheim classic stars Ethan Slater, Stephen Pasquale, Will Swenson, Eddie Cooper, Tavi Gevinson, and more!

Classic Stage Company presents John Doyle's highly anticipated staging of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's Assassins through January 8, 2022. Get a first look at the all-star cast in action below!

A year and a half after its planned debut, CSC will present its much-anticipated production of Assassins. A journey through the dark side of the American dream, Sondheim and Weidman's Tony-winning musical Assassins explores the lives of nine men and women who either killed (or tried to kill) one of the Presidents of the United States. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald and beyond, the stories of our country's most successful and would-be Assassins intersect in unexpected ways, creating a powerful, yet unnervingly funny look at some of the most shocking moments in U.S. history.

Lee (Evergreen, "Law & Order: SVU"), Rob Morrison (Frankenstein, Avenue Q), and Katrina Yaukey (The Great Comet, Cabaret) as members of the ensemble.
