My school had to do scenes for a performance. The performance was called On The Boards a collection of one acts. While Assassins is a play, the director chose one scene from it and performed it. I was at an aw! I loved it so much! It was the one with Lee Harvey Oswald and Jon Whilkes Booth. I highly recomend this book it rules!

By far the most powerful play I've ever read, or seen. Somehow Sondheim and Weidman found a way to take the most controvertial topic in the USA and turn it into a dark comedy that stretches audiences minds and makes them look at the Assassinations from a different viewpoint. A viewpoint that brought tears to hundreds of audience members nightly durring it's short Broadway run.
