LIZZIE slays Chicago!



“A furiously performed declaration of feminist strength and survivorship … A show tailor-made for its moment … constructed to be a great collective cry of passion and self-actualization and a warning of painful consequence for the patriarchy … LIZZIE deserves to be a smash hit for Firebrand”



“Take a pure American gothic tale that grabbed the headlines in a small New England town in 1892 and quickly went on to become a cause celebre across the nation. Set it to a volcanic, quasi-operatic punk rock beat that captures the sense of female rage, retribution and betrayal, and feels custom-made for the current climate. And then just let it roar … Firebrand Theatre’s ‘Lizzie’ sets the stage on fire”



“Firebrand Theatre’s first production, a rock musical about Lizzie Borden, makes a big, bloody splash. If one were to choose the inaugural production for a brand new feminist musical theater company, one that was to debut amid a never-before-seen unearthing of male sexual predation amidst the country’s cultural and political elites, than you probably couldn’t pick a better show than Lizzie, a rock musical retelling of the tale of Lizzie Borden, America’s favorite axe murderess. And in director Victoria Bussert’s swaggering, ass-kicking production for Firebrand Theatre, news-weary audiences will get exactly the experience they’re hoping for.”




When: Through Dec. 17
Where: The Den Theatre, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave.
