AS­SAS­SINS

Where Sydney - - Where Now Live On Stage -

Home­grown mu­si­cal su­per­star David Camp­bell stars in Hayes The­atre Co’s pro­duc­tion of Stephen Sond­heim’s Tony Award-win­ning mu­si­cal “As­sas­sins”. “As­sas­sins” com­bines Sond­heim’s sig­na­ture blend of stun­ning lyrics and beau­ti­ful mu­sic with a panoramic story of the 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.

From 15 Septem­ber, Hayes The­atre Co, 19 Green­knowe Av­enue, Potts Point. 8065 7337. hayesthe­atre.com.au
