LIZZIE arrived at the Anacostia Playhouse on January 12, and the press took notice! You’ve got two more weekends to rock out with the show everyone’s raving about. Get your tickets now, and don’t miss out on the bloody-good fun!
“By the end of Lizzie, there was a sense of victory, as the girls roared out their last notes, having shared their tale of revenge, murder, and passion.” — DC Theatre Scene
“Featuring an ensemble of gifted performers and musicians, LIZZIE: The Musical is a riotous, feminist retelling of one of the most sensational crimes in American history.” — DC Metro Theater Arts“Given the temper of the times, it’s a comfort to know that the theatre remains a place where we can commune in our rage, and live vicariously through villains we love, but whom we’d rather not meet. Lizzie should be a great way to celebrate resistance, of the familial or political kind.” — BroadwayWorld
About LIZZIE: The Musical
On an August morning in 1892, in a small town in Massachusetts, Andrew and Abby Borden were brutally murdered in their home with an axe. Their daughter, Lizzie, was tried and acquitted for the crime and in the process captured the morbid fascination of the entire nation. Created by Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer, Tim Maner, and Alan Stevens Hewitt, LIZZIE is a tale of sex, rage, and murder told by Lizzie, her sister Emma, her friend Alice Russell, and her maid Bridget Sullivan — all set to a pounding riot grrrl beat.
