TELL THE STORY
CELEBRATING STEPHEN SONDHEIM & JOHN WEIDMAN’S ASSASSINS
A Benefit for Classic Stage Company
This free virtual event, which premiered on April 15, 2021, brought together a star-studded array of theater legends for performances and conversations exploring the legacy of the timely American musical, Assassins. Participants included the entire cast of our upcoming production, friends and alumni of CSC, as well as cast and creative team members from the 1990 Off-Broadway premiere and 2004 Broadway revival. And, perhaps most exciting of all, the event culminated in a special discussion between Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman.
This exciting new project was inspired by our forthcoming production of Assassins, which was originally scheduled to open April 2020. Since CSC joined theaters across the country and closed our doors due to the global pandemic, and while we are still focused on reopening, CSC was thrilled to present Tell The Story, a benefit designed to raise funds and help CSC reopen as soon as we can.
