A gothic rock ritual with a 'riotgirl' attitude ... an eerie hybrid of rock club and a turn-of-the-century New England parlor...deliciously watchable

The New York Times

Why See Lizzie?

rage, sex, betrayal, and bloody murder

Lizzie Borden took an axe... and we all know what happened next! Lizzie: The Lizzie Borden Rock Musical delves into the mystifying murders that shook the residents of Fall River, Massachusetts in August 1892. Four fierce actresses retell the story of Lizzie, the aftermath, the incredible trial and the most shocking crime in American history, like you've never seen before.

Set to a blistering rock score that references Bikini Kill, The Runaways, Heart and more, Lizzie ferociously turns the mythology on its head. Don't miss your chance to see this rollicking new musical about one of the country's most infamous legends.
