Lizzie: The Musical

On an August morning in 1892, in a small town in Massachusetts, Andrew and Abby Borden were brutally murdered in their home with an axe. Their daughter, Lizzie, was tried and acquitted for the crime and in the process captured the morbid fascination of the entire nation.

Created by Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer, Tim Maner, and Alan Stevens Hewitt, LIZZIE is a tale of sex, rage, and murder told by Lizzie, her sister Emma, her friend Alice Russell, and her maid Bridget Sullivan — all set to a pounding riot grrrl beat. “We’ve been wanting to do LIZZIE for a long time, and we’re excited that we get to be the first to bring it to DC audiences,” says Karen Lange, who serves as the artistic director of Pinky Swear Productions and will be bringing the role of Bridget to life. “With our feminist focus and rock ‘n’ roll edge, I think we’re the perfect company to show a different side of a legendary American crime.”

Four women, a six-piece band, and a spine-chilling tale of murder — LIZZIE is the rowdy recipe for a cold-blooded winter in our nation’s capital.
