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

Check out a "*new video* ":http://www.vimeo.com/10963815 created by Michael Ward and Doug Alder that answers the question, "What Is Artists Rep?
By Anton Chekhov, Adapted by Richard Kramer
Directed By Jon Kretzu
Director Jon Kretzu, who has been working with Kramer for years on this project, describes this adaptation as “ghostlike and ethereal,” and not a traditional treatment of this play. The story’s themes of the rising bourgeois and the fall of aristocracy are explored but Kramer has taken much liberty with the play’s dialogue and character development.
Richard Kramer is a writer for both television and the stage. He has been a writer and producer for the television series _thirtysomething, My So-Called Life _and Judging Amy. His play Theater District was produced by Artists Rep in 2006
