Assassination Theater: Previews begin August 11, 2015

Even after fifty years, most Americans still wonder who shot JFK and why. With ASSASSINATION THEATER, investigative reporter and author Hillel Levin offers the most plausible and complete answers to those questions heard to date. With the help of information provided by retired FBI agents that has been hidden or ignored for decades, he provides incontrovertible proof that more than one man shot the President, and identifies the organized crime masterminds behind the plot, as well as their motivation and the likely gunmen who pulled the triggers.

The World Premiere of ASSASSINATION THEATER will start a 12-week run at the Museum of Broadcast Communication (360 N. State Street, Chicago). For more information and to purchase tickets, please see

Jimmy Keene was sitting on the hot dime of a ten-year sentence when the prosecutor offered him a bizarre deal in return for his early release: Go undercover to a maximum-security penitentiary for mentally ill prisoners, befriend a serial killer and get him to confess to his crimes.

He was a birdlike little man with a carefully trimmed mustache and styled curlicues of black hair that cascaded to his shoulders. When he did dart out of the house, he was in full plumage, which could mean a fire-engine-red suit and a purple tie with a belt and boots made of matching alligator skin. “Of course,” Ricki laughs, “everyone thought he was a drug dealer.”

Her husband was indeed a dealer, but what he dealt could not have been more different from dope, and that’s what she found so funny. Zabrin sold art, and not just any art—primarily limited edition prints from the 20th-century masters Joan Miró, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dali.
