All you have to do is squeeze your little finger.
Squeeze your little finger...
You can change the wor--

In a fairground shooting gallery a group of misfits gather. Each has a problem they need to solve and each has discovered the answer - they must shoot the President of the United States!

From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, we learn of the many varied and unusual ways that each has committed (or attempted to commit) the ultimate crime; their motivations and their desire to be recognized for their actions in a world where they are largely dismissed and ignored.

Described by Sondheim as the show that comes closest to his expectations of it, ASSASSINS is a chilling, and timely, reminder that those in power ignore the poor and disenfranchised to their peril.
