South Park Sondheim

And now American Playhouse's production of Trey Parker and Matthew Stone's "Assassins In South Park", starring:

  • Chef as the Folksinger


    Someone tell the story
    Someone sing the song
    Of how I'd love to lay you down
    And go a little wrong

  • Uncle Jimbo as the Proprietor


    Now this is a four-fifty...

  • The Mayoress as Leon Czolgosz


    I did it because it is wrong for one man to have so much press when I have none.

  • Eric Cartman as Charles Guiteau


    I am goin' to the lordy
    That is so sweet!

  • Wendy Testeburger as Squeaky Fromme
    Stan as John Hinkley, Jr.


    I am unworthy of your love...




    Ew, gross!

  • Mrs. Cartman as Sara Jane Moore


    This one was on sale. It - no, not the Cheesy Poofs - well, actually the Cheesy Poofs, too.

  • The School Psychologist as Zangara


    I did it because my belly was on fire, mm-okay?

  • Mr. Garrison as Lee Harvey Oswald


    Oh my god, he killed Kennedy! You bastard!

  • Ned as Samuel Byck



  • Officer Barbrady as Bystander #1


    We crowded up close
    And I see this guy
    And I say,
    'Nothing to see here'!

  • Kyle as John Wilkes Booth
    Kenny as David Herold, James Garfield, and Gerald Ford


    Dude! Have you seen these papers? Do you know what they're calling me? A common cutthroat! A hired assassin! This one says I'm mad!


    Ee msv bn md t fnk ee kid kll th residin n gt a ay wid id!


    Dude, we did get away with it! He was a bloody tyrant and we brought him down!

Assassins is about how society interprets the American Dream, marginalizes outsiders and rewrites and sanitizes its collective history. "Something Just Broke" is a major distraction and plays like an afterthought, shoe horned simply to appease. The song breaks the dramatic fluidity and obstructs the overall pacing and climactic arc which derails the very intent and momentum that makes this work so compelling...”

“I found [the Sondheim Celebration's Company] to be completely delightful. Almost all of the numbers excited and energized me, and most of the scenes were about as pitch-perfect as you can get. I just sat there with a big smile on my face the whole show.

Which is not to say that it is perfect...”
