Sunday Night Sondheim – “Ballad of Booth” from Assassins

“The Ballad of Booth” from Assassins

I have to say that one of the best productions of Assassins that I’ve ever seen was a production a few years ago by Porchlight Music Theatre.  Porchlight’s L. Walter Stearns created some brilliant staging by setting the production in a museum, with a tour guide intermittently walking through – tourists in tow – giving one the feeling that we were truly experiencing various moments in history.

This YouTube video is from “Sondheim: A Celebration at Carnegie Hall”.  Who knew that Victor Garber (Legally Blonde, etc.) had such a great voice?!  Enjoy!
