There is no country in the world quite like the United States of America, and there is no musical in theatre history quite like ASSASSINS, a show that manages to be scary, hilarious, critical, and patriotic all at the same time. (Kinda like the USA itself.) Here to discuss it this week is actor, producer, and longtime Sondheim fan Kila Packett. So fire up your grill this Memorial Day weekend and enjoy as we explore these moments in world and theatre history while failing to avoid “assassin puns” in the process.
