A RTISTIC DIR ECTOR’S NOTE I’m thrilled that you have joined us for Assassins, which is the third full-scale musical that we have produced in the Quadracci Powerhouse. We started our musical theater journey two years ago with our critically-acclaimed production of the masterful Cabaret, which was also my first production at The Rep. We then followed this up last season with the provocatively challenging and highly entertaining rock musical, Next To Normal. Along the way, we’ve received much enthusiastic response from long-term subscribers who may not have previously expected to see musicals at The Rep; and we’ve certainly found an entirely new audience that now comes to The Rep specifically for musicals. I love the often immediate effect that a dramatically and emotionally powerful piece of musical theater can have on an audience; and I am particularly drawn to musicals of gravitas and scale that encourage much further discussion and debate long after the final curtain has fallen. Given all of this, Assassins seemed a perfect follow-up to our two previous main stage musicals, and they don’t really come more powerful and provocative than this particular piece. Written 22 years ago now, this musical – with its brilliant score and acerbically witty libretto – has, in many ways, sadly become more poignant with our relatively recent experience of tragedy in relation to gun crime in America. Not just with the assassins – no, let’s call them what they actually are: murderers – or would-be murderer/assassins of Presidents of the United States – but also with those that are involved in the seemingly daily tragedies that happen across America; and, very often, right in our own backyards. Assassins is not in any way a lecture or exposé on the rights and wrongs, or the positives and negatives, of gun culture and ownership in this country, but merely asks us to look at the disenfranchised, sometimes celebrity-seeking, usually mentally ill, men and women of our communities, who decide to take the law into their own hands to make a “statement” to be remembered for all time. Assassins attempts to hold up a mirror to ourselves and to our society, and to take a good long, hard look at how a country – whilst in constant pursuit of the American Dream – can inadvertently encourage and facilitate those who are singing to the tune of “Another National Anthem.” Thank you for coming to see Assassins. If the post-show conversation that you have is half as revealing, informative and riveting as it has been for us in creating this piece of theater, then that will make us all here at The Rep very happy. Cheers! Mark Clements Artistic Director Assassins – 6
