Jan 19 @ 7:30 am
Mobile Theatre Guild presents "Assassins" @ Mobile Theatre Guild | Mobile | Alabama | United States

Mobile Theatre Guild presents “Assassins”. A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins 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, embodied by America’s four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.
