ASSASSINS
Jun 20 @ 8:00 pm
The Warehouse Theatre

A journey through the dark side of the American dream, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Tony-winning musical Assassins explores the lives of nine men and women who either killed (or tried to kill) one of the Presidents of the United States. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald and beyond, the stories of our country’s most successful and would-be assassins intersect in unexpected ways, creating a powerful, yet unnervingly funny look at some of the most shocking moments in US history.

WHY SEE THIS SHOW:  Do you like musicals by the greatest theatrical composer of our time?  Do you like dark comedies? Unusual premises?  Incredible production values including immersive seating and, as always, a live orchestra?  You’re in luck, we have ASSASSINS for you!

WHO SHOULD SEE THIS SHOW?  If you liked the dark exploration of history in BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON, the absurdity of the premise of URINETOWN THE MUSICAL, or the energy of an EVIL DEAD or NATIVE GARDENS, this show is for you.

THIS SHOW CONTAINS MATURE LANGUAGE, THEMES, AND SIMULATED GUN VIOLENCE.

Steve Earle Alone Again Solo and Acoustic show
Jun 21 all-day
Foundation Performing Arts Center

Steve Earle is one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation. A protege of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, he quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders, and countless others. 1986 saw the release of his record, Guitar Town, which shot to number one on the country charts and is now regarded as a classic of the Americana genre. Subsequent releases like The Revolution Starts…Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007), and TOWNES (2009) received consecutive GRAMMY® Awards. Restlessly creative across artistic disciplines, Earle has published both a novel and collection of short stories; produced albums for other artists such as Joan Baez and Lucinda Williams, and acted in films, television (including David Simon’s acclaimed The Wire), and on the stage. In 2009, Earle appeared in the off-Broadway play Samara, for which he also wrote a score that The New York Times described as “exquisitely subliminal.” Earle wrote music for and appeared in Coal Country, a riveting Public Theater play that dives into the most-deadly mining disaster in U.S. history, for which he was nominated for a Drama Desk Award. Mr. Earle was recently inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame
