LIZZIE is a TBA Recommended Production and critics and audiences are raving!
Lizzie Borden took an axe, Gave her mother forty whacks
When she saw what she had done, Gave her father forty-one…
America’s favorite axe-wielding double-murderess comes to the Ray of Light stage for a rocking Bay Area premiere. In 1892, Lizzie Borden was the primary suspect for her father and stepmother’s brutal murder. Though eventually acquitted, Lizzie became a tabloid sensation–and the most controversial figure of her time. Did she do it? And if so, why? LIZZIE imagines the story behind the legend with a cast of four women and a driving rock score, melding this infamous 19th century story with a modern-day twist.
