This musical, with a book by John Weidman, explores the history of presidential assassination in America, from John Wilkes Booth to John Hinckley, Jr. Assassins climaxes in a surreal sequence where the assassins convince Lee Harvey Oswald that his act is the only way he will connect – with them, with history, and with the world.
Newly edited, with new music engravings, added songs, articles and photos.
No complaints whatsoever. The product -the score of Assassins is clear and well layed out both musically and lyrically. On that note being Sondheim it is a complex score and I would have really like to have chord symbols in the score -just for simplicity sake. Very much worth getting Anonymous
