Performance Dates

To kick off the 30th anniversary season, Signature Theatre produces their 30th Sondheim musical with the daring and darkly funny Tony Award®-winning musical exposé – Assassins.

From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, nine would-be and successful presidential assassins inspire each other to pull the trigger and change their worlds in a perverse, wry and thrillingly entertaining vaudeville.

Directed by Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer, a cast of Signature favorites including Nova Y. Payton, Tracy Lynn Olivera, Evan Casey, Bobby Smith and others explore Sondheim’s stunning music and sardonic lyrics in a fascinating examination of the twisted American Dream.
