Come one, come all and cast your lot with this magnificent carnival of passionate urges! Sondheim draws back the curtain on America's nine presidential assassins, who took aim for political or very personal vendettas. Their darkly comic justifications (set to music!) are just the balm for an election season that's already set to explode.
