Lizzie Borden took an ax…" And we know what happened next. Or do we? Lizzie is a powerhouse rock-show retelling of the sensational - and bloody - double murder that shocked New England in the summer of 1892, as told through the fierce performances of four stellar actresses. What starts as the abuse and despair of a troubled woman results in a shocking act of revenge when she takes a hatchet to her oppressive father and stepmother. Charged with the killing of her parents, Lizzie becomes a media sensation even as the trial takes its toll on the relationships with those dearest to her.
