WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Lizzie Borden took an axe. Gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, gave her father forty-one. In 1892 on a sweltering August day in a small New England town, "somebody" hacked a well-to-do elderly man and his second wife to death with an axe. Lizzie Borden, their young daughter, was named the main suspect, arrested, and tried. But without any witnesses to the hideous crime, she was acquitted - and the murder remains unsolved to this day. Though Lizzie was ultimately declared innocent according to the law, her infamy lives on. The rock musical Lizzie Borden enters the gruesome Borden household to explore this legendary story through the eyes of Lizzie, her older sister Emma, Lizzie's close friend Alice, and the housemaid Bridget. Packed with kick-ass original songs, four fierce rocker divas backed by a live 4-piece band, and two very bloody murders, this tale of repression and patricide sheds some light on why Lizzie Borden may have taken up that axe - and why some wouldn't condemn her for it.
