what the critics are saying

“Soaring and ravishing.... Fans of the 1991 recording knew the score was smart and funny, but this new recording is also touching.”

“This new version makes the piece seem fresher than ever.”
–The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“As good if not better than than the original...there is a vitality to the performances and to Paul Gemignani's music direction that makes Sondheim's songs even more thrilling.”
–Oakland Tribune

“It takes only one listen to this excellent recording to see why Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's musical took home five Tony Awards.”
–Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“Does this new [CD of] Assassins supplant the worthy original? My answer, on consideration, is a definite 'yes.'”
