Does ASSASSINS have an intermission, and if so when during the performance does it occur? On the CD there is no indication of an act one or an act two...is it just a one act show? How odd...

"I don't really get the ending,all i can go with is when after several months,Judith saw Pat sang,and later she kissed him on the toilet,after that the story back to where Pat went down from the stage after he'd sung,and he went to the italian lady.I just don't get it,what Judith exatcly meant when he kissed Pat that she had seen,and did Pat end up together with The Italian Lady?Please help me,thank u very much!" Quote from someone on IMDB in reference to a movie he/she didn't understand. Such grammar!

The original was in one act. Whether an interval has been added is yet to be seen.

Many shows are done in one act: A Chorus Line, Pippin and Follies to name three biggies.

Yes it is worth seeing for any number of reasons even if you don't like it.

As with nearly all Sondheim it is quite smartly written. Granted the topic is not the most appetizing.

If you are serious about theatre in general and musicals in particular, you really need to get into the habit of seeing them all which alas, includes the ones you know will be stinkers. You've got to see the lousy ones to appreciate the good ones.

Look at the cast!

This is the first NY production since the original which was seen by very few people by comparison.

Go.
