True Blood’s Denis O’Hare will be seen this December in a reunion concert of the 2004 Tony Award-winning revival of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s “Assassins.”
Along with Denis, the cast will include Neil Patrick Harris, Marc Kudisch, Becky Ann Baker and Michael Cerveris who are among the returning troupers; the full cast will be back.
Tickets for the staging, again directed by Joe Mantello at Studio 54, go on sale Aug. 21.

The dark musical explores the characters, motivations and social climates attached to U.S. presidential assassinations, attempted and realized. Cerveris played John Wilkes Booth and took home the Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.
The production marked the Broadway debut of a property that already had a 1991 Off-Broadway staging and cast album. PS Classics ended up recording the Broadway cast, too, offering the most complete disc of the Americana-laced show set in the conceptual world of a carnival’s shooting gallery, where scenes and people emerge from the shadows.
