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

Very creative ideas that pulled this play off right down to the stage hands. The main character was wonderful and she will not be easily forgotten. I would pay more to see her act and watch her facial expressions again. A notable problem was that the audience was filled with friends of the actors, and in their support, inappropriately laughed alot. They laughed quite loudly when others were not...and I noticed that many of us found that annoying and disruptive.
Kicking off Portland Actors Conservatory’s (PAC) 27th Anniversary season of plays, Reckless_, the 1983 dark comedy by Craig Lucas, will be directed by PAC executive director and faculty member Philip Cuomo (_The Comedy of Errors, Drammy Award winning director).
When Rachel’s husband takes a hit out on her life, her narrow Christmas escape gifts her with a peculiar, but loving, new family. Unfortunately, the holidays come around again with a vengeance.
