Mu­si­cal: With a cast of char­ac­ters that in­cludes John Wilkes Booth and Lee Har­vey Oswald — who played key parts in the deaths of Abra­ham Lin­coln and John F. Kennedy re­spec­tively — As­sas­sins is no or­di­nary mu­si­cal. But Stephen Sond­heim is no or­di­nary com­poser for the theatre. David Mealor di­rects this oblique his­tory of the US for Fly­ing Pen­guin Pro­duc­tions. Ade­laide Fes­ti­val Cen­tre un­til De­cem­ber 15. Tick­ets: $ 27. Book­ings: 131 246.
