Off Broadway is about to get bloody!

Lizzie Borden is the original good girl turned bad. Her story has become legendary, and her name is infamous. Now, she's telling her own tale with a killer new voice. Witness Lizzie Borden like never before: in true hair-raising, hard-hitting, rock star fashion. As secrets in the Borden household reach a boiling point, Lizzie's rage explodes, and she finds herself considering the unthinkable. You may know the poem, but you only know half the story. Featuring four powerhouse actresses at the top of their game, LIZZIE is the cutting-edge new musical you'll be dying to see.
The creative team includes Shoko Kambara (scenic design), Charlotte Yetman (costume design), Greg Hofmann (lighting design), Alex Hawthorn (sound design), Alan Stevens Hewitt (orchestrations), and Julie McBride (musical direction). Casting is by Tara Rubin.
