Lizzie: The Musical

November 3, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - November 5, 2023 @ 9:00 pm

*By popular demand, an additional performance has been added on Sunday, November 5 at 6:30pm. An additional post-show talkback has been added after the Friday, November 3 performance with author, lawyer and Lizzie Borden expert, Cara Robertson.*

 

The subject of centuries-old, sing-song villainy, Lizzie Borden turns searing rock anthem anti-hero and has audiences raging in their seats.

Lizzie was famously acquitted and yet the question lingers… did she do it? Now, as the story is retold by four women defying musical theater stereotypes, fronting a six-piece rock band, and delivering a score that epitomizes riot grrrl power, Lizzie finally gets her say.

Nominated for three Drama Desk awards and named best musical eight times over in regional awards around the country and the world, this musical is totally whack (in a good way)!

The production is helmed by Ilyse Robbins, and features Sophia Muharram, Liza Giangrande, Nora Sullivan, Temma Beaudreau, Stephanie Barney, and Eleni Kontzamanys.

“Presented with wall-rattling glee…deliciously watchable!” – The New York Times

“Take a pure American gothic tale that grabbed the headlines in a small New England town in 1892 and quickly went on to become a cause celebre across the nation. Set it to a volcanic, quasi-operatic punk rock beat that captures the sense of female rage, retribution and betrayal, and feels custom-made for the current climate. And then just let it roar.” – Chicago Sun Times
