Rage! Sex! Betrayal! Bloody murder!

In the heat of late summer 1892, Andrew Borden and his wife are found murdered in their house. The main suspect in the murders is Andrew’s youngest daughter from a previous marriage, Lizzie Borden. Using a searing rock score, and based on the historical record, LIZZIE explores the heady and heated days leading up to the murder and Lizzie’s controversial acquittal of all charges and the creation of a new American myth.

“What an incredible show. Every, single patron who came to see our production LOVED it. If given the opportunity, I’d do Lizzie again, in a heartbeat!”

-Noelle H., Producer. In the Wings Promotions, (Montreal, CA).
