Theater 2020 "Visions for a New Millennium"
"Theater 2020 has once again proven that you can easily delight an audience when you have 1,000 times more imagination than funding!"
- The Huffington Post, 2015
With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by John Weidman, based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr., Assassins is not done as often as many of Sondheim's other musicals, perhaps due to the nature of the subject. It is a revue-style dark comedic portrayal of men and women who attempted (successfully or not) to assassinate Presidents of the United States, and the music varies to reflect the popular music of the eras depicted. In this production award nominated director/actor David Fuller puts us in a college lecture hall, where the history of assassination attempts in America is being taught, and history comes ALIVE!
