Quotes & Highlights

• “By the end of Lizzie, there was a sense of victory, as the girls roared out their last notes, having shared their tale of revenge, murder, and passion.” —DC Theatre Scene

• “Featuring an ensemble of gifted performers and musicians, LIZZIE: The Musical is a riotous, feminist retelling of one of the most sensational crimes in American history.” —DC Metro Theater Arts

• “Given the temper of the times, it’s a comfort to know that the theatre remains a place where we can commune in our rage, and live vicariously through villains we love, but whom we’d rather not meet.
