Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Assassins” comes to the Redhouse Friday. With 96 seats, the Redhouse theatre has a smaller space than most off-Broadway productions of the famed musical. Syracuse audiences can get up-close and personal with the infamous assassins and attempted murderers throughout American history.

Musical Director Zachary Orts says “Assassins” helps us understand and work through national tragedy. Premiering the same week as the 2012 presidential debates, the musical boasts a tragic relationship to the American Dream that resonates today.

“Assassins” opens this Friday, October 5th at 8 p.m. Stephen Svoboda directs the show. For tickets, visit the Redhouse box office at 201 S. West St. You can also purchase tickets online at www.theredhouse.org or by calling 315-425-0405. “Assassins” runs at the Redhouse through October 13.
