I am excited to announce that we will produce a one-night-only reunion of our Tony Award winning production of Assassins as a Benefit Concert Reading. This masterwork by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman will again be directed by Joe Mantello, along with the return of Paul Gemignani as Music Director.
All of the original principal cast members will be included in this incredible homecoming: Becky Ann Baker (Sara Jane Moore), James Barbour (Leon Czolgosz), Mario Cantone (Samuel Byck), Michael Cerveris (John Wilkes Booth), Mary Catherine Garrison (Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme), Alexander Gemignani (John Hinckley), Neil Patrick Harris (Balladeer/Lee Harvey Oswald), Marc Kudisch (Proprietor), Jeffrey Kuhn (Giuseppe Zangara) and Denis O’Hare (Charles Guiteau).
The company will also include ensemble cast members from the original 2004 production: Merwin Foard, Eamon Foley, Ken Krugman, Anne L. Nathan, Chris Peluso, Brandon Wardell, Sally Wilfert. It is truly an honor to bring back so many dear members of the Roundabout Family to revisit this landmark production.
Assassins is a brilliant piece of theatre, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to return to the show with this star-studded cast.
