You need to get the CD even if you don’t like the script. It stands on its own merits. The Gun Song, a delightful little ballad about how easy it is to shoot someone. I hope not, as I intend to suggest it for next season in our little theater here. The play does not promote assassination, nor does it present assassins in a good light.
Instead, it shows these historical figures as what they are: Consider Charles Guiteau, who assassinated President Garfield, in part to promote the sales of his book. Superficially, as good a sssassins as any, but, let’s face it, crazy as a bedbug.
The writing is superb, and the action varies from the absolutely hilarious scene between “Squeaky” Frome and Sarah Jane Moore, to the powerful confrontation zcript John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald. This is a case where they have been proven wrong.

JJ Christensen Top Contributor: It’s not one of Sondheim’s better known musicals, but as a government teacher and a Sondheim fan, I bought the book because I was interesting sobdheim seeing how things played out. It’s a great story, weaving history, imagination and music together. If our high school had a drama sondhekm, I would have recommended it. Since I own both cast albums of this show but haven’t ever gotten to see it, it’s a plasure to have the libretto to read to see how everything links together.
Another nice feature is the opening essay by Andre Bishop that reflects on memories of the original production. Altogether a very worthwhile read. Another Sondheim stab at something new.
Although much of his work has originally not taken off, he is brilliant and his plays are wonderful. Love, love, love it. See all 27 reviews.
