Director John Ferzacca has taken a musical that is structured clumsily, simplified it to its bones and made it work beautifully.

Assassins is a "different" sort of a musical, as one patron effused on her way out of Orange Coast College's production on opening night. The heroes and heroines of this dark fantasy by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman are killers, yes, but not mere murderers. As John Wilkes Booth, pioneer of President-shooters, explains to reluctant protege Lee Harvey Oswald: "Adulterers and shopkeepers get murdered. When a President gets killed, he is assassinated."
