A Blazing rock-and-roll extravaganza!

SYNOPSIS

“Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one.” Or did she? This blistering rock musical upends what we think we know about the notorious crime that has captured our collective imagination since that bloody night in 1892. Was Lizzie Borden a cold-blooded killer or a victim of the Victorian patriarchy? 

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! SCORCHING SCORE!”

– Chicago Sun-TIMES

“Deliciously Watchable”

– New York Times

“DYNAMIC…THRILLING…A FURIOUSLY PERFORMED DECLARATION OF FEMINIST STRENGTH ”
