From John Wilkes Booth to John Hinckley Jr., Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award winning one-act musical bends time to bring together America's most memorable presidential assassins and puts them on stage for the performance of a lifetime. This warped but tuneful tour through history explores the dark underbelly of the American Dream. As the musical fleshes out the characters of the killers (or would-be killers) within the framework of a grisly carnival game, the revue-style parade of assassins makes you think about your own dark side and the part American culture plays in creating these monsters. The lively score takes on a variety of genres to reflect the popular music of each generation of assassins. [less-]

While you might be familiar with Ambrosia's radio hits of the '70s, the songs on their five albums also hit on progressive and experimental. This group, which was originally labeled as America's answer to English acts like Yes and King Crimson, is as comfortable with ballads as with driving rock 'n' roll. They can be serious, they can be playful -- but the music is always rich and the harmonies are beautifully blended. Some of their hits include "Holdin' On to Yesterday," "Nice, Nice, Very Nice," a cover of The Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour," "How Much I Feel," "Biggest Part of Me" and "You're the Only Woman."
