(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) -- Music Mountain Theatre presents Assassins weekends from July 14-30, 2023.  Assassins is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by John Weidman, based on an original concept by Charles Gilbert Jr.  It combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical "revusical" that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Assasins bends the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller-coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.

No stranger to the MMT stage, Molly Logan returns to direct the production.  The cast is led by Kyle Binkley as John Wilkes Booth and Patrick Lavery as Lee Harvey Oswald with Lauren Brader, Rhett Commodaro, Seth Epstein, Michael Gearty, Stephen Hoppe, Jason Kohn, Tristan Takacs, Morgan Tarrant, Jenna Parrilla Alvino, Nicholas Kianka, Roger Madding, Alison McMullen, and Bill Weir.
