We’re thrilled to have made the Top 10 theater lists in PQ Monthly and Willamette Week for our fantastic production at Portland Center Stage this past Spring:
Top Ten Plays I Saw in 2014, PQ Monthly
“Portland Center Stage. The sounds of hair metal and grunge powered this fun, gory, queer feminist musical. Mary Kate Morrissey was brilliant as the titular Lizzie Borden who gets revenge against her incestuous, scheming parents. A great match of humor, horror and romance, it was a one of a kind spectacle.”

Best of the Stage 2014, Willamette Week
“Once in a while, the biggest theater company in town tosses its heft behind something truly delicious—like this boisterous rock opera, which imagined ax murderer Lizzie Borden as a foot-stomping hellion, and unfolded with lots of primordial wails and power stances. The punky anthems of rebellion and revenge remained in my head long after the final ax dropped.”
