The bloody legend of America's favorite axe-wielding double-murderess, Lizzie Borden, comes to the stage in a new rock musical, LIZZIE. Accused of brutally killing her father and stepmother, Lizzie Borden was acquitted in 1892, making her so infamous she was even the subject of a macabre jump-rope rhyme. Officially unsolved, the case continues to capture the popular imagination. Inspired by the great rock spectacles of the '70s and women rockers like Patti Smith and Joan Jett, this is the bloody legend of Lizzie Borden. Learn More
In Crooked, life sucks forfourteen year old Laney who, besides dealing with typical teenage angst is afflicted by a muscle disordercalled dystonia, which causes her posture to angle to one side as her back muscles fight withthemselves even while at rest. Her mother Elise is recently divorced, in crisis, and has moved herself and her daughter to Oxford, Mississippi where the question “Have you found a church?” is considered polite conversation.
Laney has a burning desire to be a writer and she uses her active imagination to write vividly violent short stories. When she befriends Maribel, the openhearteddaughter of an evangelical preacher, Laney uses her penchant for fiction to reinvent herself with actions as rebellious as they are
cries for acceptance. This sensitive story of sexual and spiritual awakening follows Laney as she battles her inner demons in her quest to be loved.
