BWW Interviews: Carrie Manolakos Talks LIZZIE and Her Career
by Kristina Nungaray - Sep 27, 2013

This past summer, Theatre Under the Stars finally gave us the news that many had eagerly been anticipating. In July, TUTS announced their newest endeavor and introduced us to TUTS Underground, a brand of theatre that is edgy and features innovative and modern works.

Opening the inaugural season for TUTS Underground is LIZZIE, a rock musical about the infamous murderess Lizzie Borden.

BWW CD Reviews: LIZZIE Haunts and Soars
by David Clarke - Oct 8, 2013

I can't pinpoint the date that the musical LIZZIE first made a bleep on my radar, but I do know that by June 16, 2013, I was dying to hear the album.

Luckily, after roughly four months of anticipation, I finally got my hands on LIZZIE, a theatrical concept double album, and I couldn't be more blown away. (more...)
