Presented by A/C Theatre Company
Fans of horror and rock-shows will enjoy this retelling of the bloody legend of America’s favorite favorite axe-wielding double-murderess and Victorian hometown girl, Lizzie Borden. The young woman achieved notiereity in 1892 after ending her father and stepmother’s lives, using an axe as the murder weapon. This bloody, true story has inspired an array of shows and depictions, including a 1965 opera and two distinct musicals.
A/C Theatre presents this small-cast rock setting version by Steven Cheslik-deMeyer, Tim Maner, and Alan Stevens Hewitt at the Hardes Theatre at Phoenix Theatre.
Catch the show on weekends (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays) through Saturday, August 27th.
Location: 100 East McDowell Road Phoenix, AZ 85004

“A gothic rock ritual with a ‘riotgirl’ attitude… an eerie hybrid of rock club and a turn-of-the-century New England parlor.” – The New York Times
“Lush tunes which retch sex, rage, dyke heat, misanthropy, and incest … Surreal glee and gallows humor … Finally, a rock musical you’d wanna mosh to.” – The Village Voice
