Sondheim’s darkly comedic musical presents a revue of historical figures who attempted (successfully or not) to assassinate different presidents of the United States. The musical explores what the assassins’ presence in American history says about the ideals of their country. The score reflects both popular music of the various depicted eras and a broader tradition of “patriotic” American music.
