Assassins Revival Scrapped Following Terrorist Attacks

A Broadway revival of STEPHEN SONDHEIM's musical ASSASSINS has been scrapped following last week's (11SEP01) terrorist attacks in America. The show, which focuses on the men who have killed or tried to kill American presidents, was to have opened at the MUSIC BOX THEATRE on 1 November (01).

A statement from the producers reads, "In the light of Tuesday's murderous assaults on our nation we, the ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY, and the director JOE MANTELLO, believe this is not an appropriate time to present (this) show. " (KW/WNWCAN)
