Assassins Walking Tour

March 18, 2023


Tour starts at Lafayette Square in front of the Andrew Jackson statue and will be approximately 2 hours long.

As part of the Sharing Sondheim project, listen and speak the lyrics of the musical Assassins while you follow in the footsteps of John Wilkes Booth and other presidential assassins at a walking tour in Downtown DC, led by experienced tour guide Jess Unger. Learn about the motives of the characters from the Sondheim musical and see how the city itself has been altered to keep the president safe.

The tour is approximately 1.5 miles over some uneven ground with limited availability for sitting. Tour will happen rain or shine.
