the gun song assassins

I haven't read a musical in awhile that excited me as much as this one did. In today's era of increased gun violence and political unrest, this musical is sadly more timely than ever.

For the longest time, my relationship with this piece was purely through the score. I loved this and think it would be great to perform.

Off-Center season. The fact that this is just text, no music, no acting, makes it hard for me to rate it. by Theatre Communications Group. Nuff said.

The Gun Song by Tom McGunn, Edward Fraim, Kevin Webb, released 20 August 2012 It makes total sense in the context of the play, and it delivers profound emotions. like its very intentional, but still a fuckin roller coaster A Good Time Thanks For The Good Times Uncle Sondheim xoxo. So it's clever and just wonderful. Assassins probably contains the most diverse array of musical styles in a single show Sondheim has used including Revolutionary era piccolo and drum, a folksy acoustic guitar love ballad unlike anything I've ever heard Sondheim write, and the grand, punctuated Golden Age Broadway sound.

Sondheim turns what could have been "School House Rock Presents The Presidential Assassins" into an examination of The American Dream and its limitations.

The sublime soundtrack to 2020's critically-acclaimed roguelike spans hard rock bangers, smoldering ambient tracks, folk ballads, and more.

The stories of the men and women pushed to the brink of madness by war, politics, entitlement, circumstance and a desire for fame to kill (or try to kill) the President of the United States are woven together with song to create a piece that is ultimately compelling, horrifying and at times wickedly funny.

Sondheim's piece is thought-provoking & brilliant. Each of the songs is incredibly compelling, musically speaking, and varying levels of incredibly disturbing, culminating with what seems to be a sweet love duet, until you remember it's John Hinckley Jr. and Squeaky Fromme singing. Off-Center production of Sondheim and John Weidman’s Assassins: "The Gun Song," performed by Victoria Clark, John Ellison Conlee, Shuler Hensley, and Steven Pasquale. John Wilkes Booth, Leon Czolgosz and Samuel Byck get very strong (fictional) interpretations here with the text they're given. It is simply fabulous. We have done WAITING FOR GODOT (an absurdist play) and THE ICEMAN COMETH (a realistic play), so, now I think we need to do a metatheatrical musical. I can't decide if reading and listening to Sondheim's ode to presidential killings the same week as Trump makes his 2nd Amendment solution to HRC comment is poorly timed or not.

One of those 12 songs is particularly intriguing given the central theme of this playlist, sigh. How fortuitous that I read this and listened to the score this close to the next presidential race!

it’s like you’re chilling in a washing machine, erratically twisting & turning n shit, having a good time but also like, i’m inside of a fucking washing machine and drowning rn??

I daresay that if your politics lean toward the conservative side, you will hate this piece. See what’s coming soon, what’s premiering out of town, and what’s in development. One of my favorite musicals, Assassins is also one of the most deeply fucked up pieces of fiction I've ever encountered. Few musicals are as chilling as this one.

To make tickets more affordable, many Off-Broadway shows have implemented rush, lottery, and inexpensive ticket policies.

I rarely give five stars to anything, and to be honest, I hesitate doing so here.

Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman build a compelling dark comedy around the foibles and neuroses of American political assassins, whether idealistic (Leon Czolgosz), self-serving (Charles Guiteau), grandiose (John Wilkes Booth) or simply crazy (Sam Byck, Squeaky Fromme). What is particularly interesting here is how Weidman manages to give the assassins a face, to show how they came to their act.

Interesting but not spectacular, not the proper medium. lyrically it hits so different, ur empathizing with the characters, all romanticized and likable, but then OOOP abruptly interrupted in jarring horrific/depressing/comedic ways bc they’re BAD PEOPLE, really uncomfortable & strange but moving?

So gloriously less-than-PC.

I good production of this musical however with a strong point of view might be able to fix this. Their imaginary interactions and real-world crimes are explored, guided by the voice of the American dream (The Balladeer) and the voice of dissatisfaction and violent dissent (The Proprietor).

Yes, the book doesn't quite do the score the justice it deserves, but it's still pretty good, and when you put them together - GEEZ LOUISE. And it gives you lots of nifty history on our assassins and would-be assassins.". The assassins realize that they will never get their prizes, that no one will ever care if they live or die, and briefly sink into absolute desperation until Byck and the Proprietor lead them in "Another National Anthem," a song for all Americans dispossessed by the dream.
