Earlier today, Roundabout Theatre Company has announced a special Benefit performance of ASSASSINS with music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by John Weidman, with Joe Mantello reprising his Tony Award winning direction.
Reuniting for one night only are the stars of the 2004 Tony Award winning production: 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 Benefit Concert Reading will take place on Monday, December 3, 2012 at 7:30PM at Studio 54, on the same Broadway stage that Assassins thrilled audiences in 2004. The evening will feature musical direction by Paul Gemignani.
