LIZZIE has been named to a top ten list in every city we’ve been in. This past year that included Playhouse Square/Baldwin-Wallace, Cleveland, OH and Village Theatre Issaquah, WA
“You remember Ms. Borden. She inspired the demented singsong, “Lizzie Borden took an ax, gave her mother 40 whacks / When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.”
There were almost as many reasons to love this collaboration of PlayhouseSquare, Victoria Bussert and her Broadway-ready students from the Baldwin Wallace University music theater program.”
“Long before Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony turned legal proceedings into media circuses, a comely ax murderess morphed into a cause célèbre.
The musical lifts facts from the court transcripts and adds a rock ‘n’ roll score to Borden’s tale.”
