May 4 - May 10, 2012
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by John Weidman; Jim Petosa, director; Matthew Stern, music director. The legendary Sondheim explores the hearts and minds that fill the gallery of America's most famous assassins, including John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald, in a stunning satire of the anarchic political violence that tragically persists at the core of our culture. As the culminating event in the College's year-long examination of the theme of violence, Assassins brims with a particularly urgent energy. Assassins runs May 4-10. Presented by the Boston University College of Fine Arts. $12 general public, $10 BU Alumni, WGBH members, Huntington subscribers, students, and senior citizens; BU community: one free ticket with BU ID at the door, day of performance, subject to availability.
