About the darkly comedic musical.

Step right up! This 5-time Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim (creator of Into The Woods, Sweeney Todd, Company) is perhaps the most controversial Broadway musical ever written. Why? While Assassins entreats audiences to a tuneful carnival filled with portrayals of history’s most notorious presidential assassins and would-be killers, it also tests the limits of free speech and questions “The American Dream” itself. With no seat more than 20 feet from the game with the highest stakes in the land, NextStop’s production promises a profound, Presidential theatrical experience you won’t soon forget.

Running Time: Assassins is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes with no intermission. 

Assassins contains gunshots, adult language and situations that may not be appropriate for all audiences. 



General Admission: $20-$60

Tickets start at $20 and increase as performances fill. For the best pricing, we recommend buying early or lock in savings with a Season Package.

Why NextStop Picked This Show

From July 2017 to June 2018, NextStop’s shows, in pairs, explore opposing and seemingly incompatible sides of big issues and ideas. Our hope is by providing a relaxed and entertaining venue for the community to gather together and be immersed in stories highlighting diverse perspectives, that we can help break down barriers which divide.

Theatre isn’t passive entertainment. When we leave the safety of our homes, interact with strangers sitting next to us, and turn off our phones, it is a powerful act of unity. Patrons of the theatre may not always agree with challenging works but do agree to consider them. In the spirit of that tradition, NextStop’s lineup of shows for July 2017 to June 2018 presents a “Point and Counterpoint” year of theatre.

This season, two shows examine the presidency of the United States; the men who have held that office and those who have railed against them. 


Assassins is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
