Book by John Weidman with music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.
Directed by Amber Bissonnette and starring Nancy McAlear, Billy Brown, Chris W. Cook, Jacob Holloway, Emma Houghton, Maxwell Lebeuf, Jeff Page, Larissa Pohoreski, Dan Rowley, Scott Shpley and Rory Turner, Assassins is one of more than 200 shows in the 2015 Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival presented by ATB Financial. This musical has been given 4/5 stars from both the Edmonton Journal and the Edmonton Sun. We sent ATB President & CEO Dave Mowat to watch the show--because he doesn’t just review oil and gas royalties.
His take: “Who’d have thought that American history would show us all the assassins of American presidents, set to a musical. Eerie when they get to the book depository—worthwhile seeing if only to remember how many U.S. presidents have been targets.”
Dave Mowat, Chief Executive Reviewer
