Using American folk music from many different eras, Assassins exploits our most notorious citizens to examine our feelings of impotence and apathy. Well regarded as a pioneer in Broadway musicals, it will challenge your idea of what it is to be an American as you laugh out loud and tap your toes to the music. As John Wilkes Booth says, “Everybody’s got the right to be happy!”

Not even a terrible title can sink this riotous, irreverent musical. Urinetown imagines a world with a major water storage where even toilets are regulated. What lengths would a person go to to have the chance to pee for free? We dare you not to laugh out loud at this delightful dystopia. What can we say - when you gotta go, you gotta go!
By Jonathan Larson

Before Rent, there was Tick, Tick...Boom!. This autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning composer of Rent, is the story of a composer and the sacrifices he made to achieve his big break in theater. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city, his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue, and yet Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical.
