NEW YORK (AP) — Presidential killers are reuniting thanks to the Roundabout Theatre Company.

The nonprofit company announced Tuesday that it will present a one-night-only benefit performance of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's "Assassins" on Dec. 3 at its Studio 54 theater.

The cast will be the same as the one that appeared to Broadway in 2004: Neil Patrick Harris, Denis O'Hare, Michael Cerveris, Becky Ann Baker, James Barbour, Mario Cantone, Mary Catherine Garrison, Alexander Gemignani, Marc Kudisch and Jeffrey Kuhn.

Joe Mantello returns to direct.

In "Assassins," Weidman and Sondheim present a cavalcade of misfits, the desperate and the disaffected who killed or tried to kill the president of the United States.

Tickets, ranging from $150 to $5,000, are on sale now.
