LIZZIE is ferocious, powerful musical theatre as rock concert: chock full of rage, sex, betrayal, and bloody murder, an American mythology set to a blistering rock score. A radically new American musical with a sound owing less to Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber than to Bikini Kill, the Runaways, and Heart.


Lizzie Borden: damaged, twisted, can turn on a dime from fragile, broken, meek and obedient to conniving, sinister, furious, and terrifying. Rock mezzo with strong high belt. All Ethnicities

Emma Borden: the older sister, resentful of her father’s marriage to his second wife and his financial support of her family. Protective, outspoken, and commanding; furious, but also desperately sad. Rock alto/mezzo belt. All Ethnicities.

Bridget Sullivan (Maggie): the Irish maid – speaks and sings in dialect. Put upon, angry, and clever with a dry and dark sense of humor. Rock and roll nihilist. Rock mezzo. All Ethnicities.

Alice Russell: the next-door neighbor, seductive and secretive. Deep in her affection for Lizzie. Pop/rock soprano with strong mix. All Ethnicities.
