The groundbreaking musical “Assassins” by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman opens the Triad Pride Acting Company’s 2022-23 season with a Bang! Using the most American of art forms, the musical, “Assassins” investigates the personalities of nine men and women who killed or attempted to kill nine Presidents. These Presidential assassins are never glorified or celebrated, but presented by Sondheim and Weidman to explore how and why each of these outsiders stop and alter history. The show is entertaining yet thought-provoking, and at turns, hilarious, jolting, and heart-wrenching, as the history of these men and women unfurls across (and often without regard to) time.
Performances of “Assassins” will run in Greensboro on August 19, 20, 26, & 27 at 8:00 PM and on August 21 & 28 at 2:00 PM at Congregational United Church of Christ at 400 W Radiance Drive, Greensboro, NC 27403. Tickets for all performances are $15 and are on sale now at triadprideperformingarts.org, by calling 336-589-6267, or at the door.
