Photo Flash: First Look at Red Blanket's ASSASSINS at The Pico Playhouse
Red Blanket Productions presents the multi-Tony Award-winning musical ASSASSINS with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by John Weidman based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr. directed by Dan Fishbach, music direction by Anthony Lucca, and choreography by Lili Fuller. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!
Disturbing, alarming, and eerily funny, ASSASSINS is perhaps one of the most controversial musicals ever written. Stephen Sondheim, the great genius of contemporary musical theater, with stand-out shows such as Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, and Company, leads audiences on a tuneful review of Presidential assassins and would-be killers from John Wilkes Booth to John Hinckley. Thought provoking and darkly delightful, ASSASSINS won five Tony Awards in its first revival on Broadway.
The cast includes the talents of Claire Adams, Jeff Alan-Lee, Sean Benedict, Janna Cardia, Cole Cuomo, Dominic De Armey, David Gallic, Adam Hunter Howard, Jason Peter Kennedy, Zachary Lutsky, Sandy Mansson, Nick Tubbs, Bryan Vickery, Selah Victor, Travis Rhett Wilson, and Paul Wong.
Material appropriate for ages 15 and up. The show runs tonight, August 21, through Sept. 27, 2015, playing Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM; Sundays at 2:00 PM at The Pico Playhouse, 10508 West Pico Blvd., Los Angeles 90064. Tickets: $30.
