ASSASSINS

This groundbreaking American musical will kick off Civic’s summer with a bang! Bold, original, surreal, thought-provoking, and alarmingly funny, this five-time Tony Award-winner investigates the personalities behind nine Presidential assassins and reveals uneasy truths about the American Dream. Hugely resonant in today’s celebrity-obsessed culture, Assassins is brought to life by its desperate, disillusioned, passionate characters. It is Stephen Sondheim’s ode to the underbelly of American history.

GOD OF CARNAGE

God of Carnage is a comedy of manners without the manners!  This internationally acclaimed comedy takes you into the most dangerous place on Earth:  parenthood.  The play is about two pairs of parents, one of whose child has hurt the other at a public park, who meet to discuss the matter in a civilized manner.  However, as the evening goes on, the parents become increasingly childish, resulting in the evening devolving into unmannered chaos.  From the writers that brought you the hit comedy ‘Art’ comes this savagely funny Tony-Award-Winning Best Play that will leave you roaring with laughter!
