From November, the Chocolate Factory presents the musical ASSASSINS by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman, directed by Jamie Lloyd.
Thirteen people have tried to kill the president of the United States. Four have succeeded. These murderers and would-be murderers are generally dismissed as maniacs and misfits who have little in common with each other, and nothing in common with the rest of us.
Assassins suggests otherwise…
This multi Tony award winning musical is directed by Jamie Lloyd who is currently represented in the West End by Richard III (Trafalgar Studios), Urinetown (Apollo) and The Commitments (Palace Theatre).
