Stellar cast assembled for Sydney Opera House season of ASSASSINS
The Sydney Opera House has announced the final cast members for its upcoming production of the critically-acclaimed musical Assassins. After a sold-out season at the Hayes Theatre Co, which received widespread critical praise and multiple nominations in last year’s Sydney Theatre Awards, this darkly entertaining, revue-style musical arrives at the Sydney Opera House’s Playhouse in June.
As previously announced, reprising the role of John Wilkes Booth, earning him the 2017 Sydney Theatre Award for Best Male Actor in a Leading Role, is acclaimed actor, singer and showman David Campbell (Dream Lover). Joining him in the role of Sam Byck is Anthony Gooley, awarded ‘Best Actor in an Independent Production’ (2011 Sydney Theatre Awards). Playing the role of Giuseppe "Joe" Zangara is Luigi Lucente, most recently seen on Sydney stages in Muriel’s Wedding and leading the cast in the Australian Premiere of Dogfight at the Hayes Theatre Co. The final cast announcement is Sydney Theatre Award winner Madeleine Jones (Muriel’s Wedding, Ladies in Black) who will play the role of Emma Goldman.
Set in a fairground shooting gallery, the Tony Award-winning Assassins tells the story of nine misfit Americans who killed (or planned to kill) their President-of-the-day. The genius of America’s greatest musical-theatre composer and lyricist, Stephen Sondheim (West Side Story, Gypsy, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods) combines with John Weidman’s book, exploring the disillusionment associated with patriotic idealism. Deploying a dose of absurd humour and a century of musical pastiche, Assassins dissects the motivations of some of history’s most notorious criminals.
Continuing their roles from the critically-acclaimed Hayes Theatre Co season are Connor Crawford (The Sound of Music, City of Angels), Hannah Fredericksen (Dream Lover, Heathers), Kate Cole (Ladies in Black, Sweet Charity), Bobby Fox (Jersey Boys, Blood Brothers), Jason Winston - formerly known as Jason Kos - (Cabaret, Miracle City),
