David Camp­bell stars in “As­sas­sins”

Where Sydney - - The Guide -

The Tony Award-win­ning mu­si­cal “As­sas­sins” opens on 7 June in the Play­house at the Syd­ney Opera House. This pro­duc­tion by Hayes The­atre Co fol­lows a suc­cess­ful, sold-out sea­son last year. “As­sas­sins” tells the story of nine mis­fit Amer­i­cans who killed (or planned to kill) their Pres­i­dent-of-the-day. With lyrics by the in­cred­i­ble Stephen Sond­heim and book by John Wei­d­man, it is a witty, en­ter­tain­ing look at some of his­tory’s most no­to­ri­ous crim­i­nals. “As­sas­sins” stars the multi-tal­ented David Camp­bell as Lin­coln’s as­sas­sin, ‘John Wilkes Booth’, along­side mu­si­cal su­per­star Hannah Fred­er­ick­sen. 7 June–1 July, Play­house, Syd­ney Opera House, Syd­ney. 9250 7777. syd­ney­op­er­a­house.com
