Sierra Stages is excited and proud to present the Nevada County premiere of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Assassins this fall at the Off Center Stage from October 25 through November 17. Assassins is not your typical musical comedy. Its characters are nine assassins who have attempted to kill the president of the United States. They are never glorified or celebrated, but presented by Sondheim and Weidman to explore how and why each of these outsiders can stop and alter history. The show is entertaining yet thought-provoking, and at turns hilarious, jolting and heart-wrenching, as the history of these men and women unfurls across (and often without regard to) time. The music is some of Sondheim’s most lyrical, with strong echoes of American patriotic song. Assassins contains strong language and adult situations. Despite this, we hope you will attend the show. It is a brilliant piece of musical theatre, performed by an extremely talented local cast of sixteen actors and singers.
