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.
