The legend of Lizzie Borden comes to life in a thrilling Wisconsin premiere, showing the days before and after Borden`s parents were brutally murdered with an axe. Four women front a six-piece rock band to take audiences on a journey of betrayal, greed, jealousy, lust, and murder.
Lizzie Borden, one of America`s most notorious alleged murderers, comes chillingly to life in LIZZIE, a glorious rock musical performed by a quartet of power house women. Go back to August of 1892 on a wild ride of sex, conspiracy, and murder in this musical gem that`s sweeping the globe.
