Whack The Vote! LIZZIE Moves To The Bootleg Theater To Get Out The Vote
Following the success of its initial run in September and an October extension, LIZZIE will now move to the Bootleg Theater to help fire up Los Angeles voters ahead of the midterm elections. This one-night-only event will take place on Nov. 5 7:30PM with voting resources available at the show.
LIZZIE, a rock retelling of the Lizzie Borden case, features a four person, all female cast. The show teases out the truth behind the rumors surrounding one of the most infamous murder trials in American history, all while delivering a score imbued with hard rock, heavy metal, and riot grrrl punk. More rock concert than traditional musical, the show features music and lyrics from writers Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer, Alan Stevens Hewitt, and Tim Maner.
Director Joanna Syiek notes "It is a tumultuous time politically, and we are thrilled to be doing this show which insists upon the fact that women have an important, powerful voice, and demands that all women have the right to be heard."
LIZZIE made Stage Raw's Top Ten during its run and is now moving from Resident DTLA to Bootleg Theater.
LIZZIE features direction and musical staging by Joanna Syiek (Indy Award Winner - Direction "American Idiot", Broadway World Nomination - Best Direction, "The Pokémusical") with musical direction by Jennifer Lin (Stage Raw Nomination - Best Music Direction "Priscilla Queen of the Desert"). The cast includes Leslie Rubino, Brooke Van Grinsven, Jenni Marie Lopez, and Samantha Labrecque, along with an understudy cast featuring Kelley Dorney, Renee Cohen, Jade Taylor and Kelsey Schulte.
This performance will take place on the eve of the midterm elections, Nov. 5 at 7:30PM at the Bootleg Theater, 2220 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90057. Tickets for this event have been discounted to just $10, and a portion of the box office will go to RAINN and Emily's List. For tickets and information, visit: www.lizzielosangeles.com.
