21a Eastern Road,


'????? Bold, disturbing and alarmingly funny!"

“Everybody’s got the right to be happy.” But what if that means assassinating the President of the USA? Winner of 5 Tony Awards, ASSASSINS has been referred to as "the most controversial musical ever written". A surprisingly witty and moving theatrical tour-de-force with intelligently brilliant lyrics and extraordinarily beautiful music.

Produced by the team that brought you A Christmas Carol and Little Shop Of Horrors, this dazzling production gives new meaning to the phrase "killer musical" as it delves into the lives, loves and lunacy of nine people who assassinated - or attempted to assassinate - the most powerful man on Earth, some with greater degrees of success than others, but all sharing in the desire to pull the trigger in twisted pursuit of that illusive American Dream.

Generally dismissed as maniacs and misfits, this group of murderers and would-be killers have little in common with each other, and nothing in common with the rest of us... or do they? Sondheim’s signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music combine to create a disturbingly dark musical comedy not to be missed.
