Description

by Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer, Tim Maner, and Alan Stevens Hewitt

Directed by Alison Burns Jackson

Audiences are in for another dark treat with the Drama Desk Award-nominated LIZZIE, a killer rock musical that’s been a certified hit around the world. Four ferocious women front a savage six-piece rock band to tell the story of Lizzie Borden, America’s favorite double axe-murderess and Victorian hometown girl-next-door. In 1892 on a sweltering August day in a small New England town, a well-to-do-elderly man and his second wife were brutally murdered with an axe in broad daylight. Lizzie Borden, their youngest daughter, was the prime suspect. She was arrested and tried for the crime, but, with no actual witnesses to the hideous event, was acquitted. The murders remain unsolved making Borden an enduring pop culture icon to this day. History tells us Lizzie was innocent, but the legend as still chanted in schoolyards and playgrounds to this day leaves no doubt about her guilt. Full of hot rock licks, riot-grrrl attitude, and gleeful gallows humor, Ralph Remington, former director of the theater division of the NEA, put LIZZIE in the same company as Hamilton and Here Lies Love as “the future of the American musical.”
