Reviews for Assassins - the first musical of Festival 2023 - are in. Take a look at what the critics are saying about the show in our review round up...
Assassins plays in the Festival Theatre until 24 June; what are you waiting for?!
Dark, dazzling and dangerously current. Chichester has a hit on its hands!
Go: I guarantee it will blow you away.
As impressive an ensemble as one could hope to hear
A uniformly excellent cast. This production has something pointed to say about the current overlap between politics, news, fame and entertainment. And it works. A brilliantly provocative piece
A triumphant reframing of Sondheim's musical. Polly Findlay's ultra-stylish production, magnificently staged. A super-size feast of a spectacle

Director Polly Findlay has done an exceptional job
Plays to See
A beautifully engineered weapon, which in the hands of Polly Findlay and her company of marksmen delivers a rifle-shot straight to the heart of American culture and politics. Head to Chichester – for outstanding musical theatre, Assassins is unmissable.
Lizzie Clachan’s design (is) a true work of genius. This killer show is a hit!
All that Dazzles
This is a delight. Go see.
A real wow of a show. Stylish, classy and bitingly funny.
