Learn more about the benefit reunion concert of the Stephen Sondheim-John Weidman musical, which tells the stories of the men and women who killed (or tried to kill) presidents of the United States. The Roundabout revival played Studio 54 in 2004, and returns there for one night only.
The staging is again directed by Joe Mantello, who won a Tony for his work. In addition to winning Tonys for Michael Cerveris (Best Actor in a Musical, for playing John Wilkes Booth), Best Musical Revival, Best Orchestrations (Michael Starobin) and Lighting Design (Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer), Denis O'Hare was nominated as Featured Actor in a Musical for playing Charles Guiteau, killer of President Garfield.
