This FREE virtual event is a benefit for Classic Stage Company. On Thursday, April 15, at 8pm a star-studded array of theater legends for performances and conversations exploring the legacy of the timely American musical, Assassins. Participants include the entire cast of our upcoming production, friends and alumni of CSC, as well as cast and creative team members from the 1990 Off-Broadway premiere and 2004 Broadway revival. And, perhaps most exciting of all, the event will culminate in a special discussion between Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman.

This exciting new project is inspired by our forthcoming production of Assassins, which was originally scheduled to open April 2020. Nowit’s been one year since CSC joined theaters across the country and closed our doors due to the global pandemic, and while we are still focused on reopening, CSC is thrilled to present Tell The Story, a benefit designed to raise funds and help CSC reopen as soon as we can.
