Congratulations to Elizabeth Kensek, for her role in THEATER 2020's (Brooklyn Heights' professional theater company) Stephen Sondheim/John Weidman musical "Assassins," in a limited run of 16 performances, Thursday, February 22nd - Sunday, March 25th, 2018.
"With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by John Weidman, based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr., Assassins is not done as often as many of Sondheim's other musicals, perhaps due to the nature of the subject. It is a revue-style dark comedic portrayal of men and women who attempted (successfully or not) to assassinate Presidents of the United States, and the music varies to reflect the popular music of the eras depicted. In this production award nominated director/actor David Fuller puts us in a college lecture hall, where the history of assassination attempts in America is being taught, and history comes ALIVE!" - Broadway World
