“In the house of Borden there’s a lock on every door,In every room a prisoner of a long, silent war.Let us take you to an August back in 1892,When all hell broke looseIn the house of Borden…”– Lizzie
It’s a sweltering August in 1892, in Fall River, Massachusetts. And Lizzie’s had enough.A prominent businessman and his wife are brutally axed to death in their home. Their daughter Lizzie Borden is the prime suspect. Lizzie’s trial is a coast-to-coast media sensation, and her story becomes an American legend. LIZZIE is ferocious, powerful musical theatre as rock concert, four women and a six-piece rock band, 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. The show has music by Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer and Alan Stevens Hewitt, lyrics by Cheslik-DeMeyer and Tim Maner, book and additional music by Maner, and additional lyrics by Hewitt.
The New York Times called the show “a gothic rock ritual with a ‘riotgirl’ attitude … an eerie hybrid of rock club and a turn-of-the-century New England parlor. . . Presented with wall-rattling glee…deliciously watchable.”
The Village Voice talked about the show’s “lush tunes which retch sex, rage, heat, misanthropy, and incest … Surreal glee and gallows humor … Finally, a rock musical you’d wanna mosh to.”
TimeOutNY called it “a fetching, brawny rock musical.”
Show Business Weekly said, “We came for splattered red, for madness and mayhem, and Lizzie more than delivers.”
The cast of New Line’s Lizzie includes Anna Skidis as Lizzie, Kimi Short as Bridget, Larissa White as Alice, and Marcy Wiegert as Emma. The show will be directed by Mike Dowdy-Windsor, with music direction by Sarah Nelson, scenic and lighting design by Rob Lippert, costume design by Sarah Porter, and sound design by Elli Castonguay.Lizzie contains adult language and content.For more information, visit the New Line Theatre website.

Sing! Dance! Create!Artists, musicians, poets, performers and all creative citizens are invited to submit project proposals for Artica 2017: ARTIKINETIC ENTANGLEMENT. Artica is a multi-media, outdoor participatory arts festival developed to provide St. Louis with the opportunity to come together as a community through creative expression. Artica’s philosophy is one of openness and inclusion. All are welcome to create, participate and celebrate on this sacred heritage site.ARTIKINETIC ENTANGLEMENTThanks to its fortuitous home at the crossing of the America's two Big Rivers, we've all had a lifetime of easily spotting St Louis on maps...and, every one of them has lied to us.Maps would have us believe that junction point unimportant--55 crosses 70, and each continues unimpeded towards its furthest reaches. According to maps, our Rivers do the same: intersect then forever extend unchanged.But, we know that's not how fluid bodies behave, that's not how intersections really happen. There are mutual feedings and takings and churnings and eddyings. There is Entanglement.ARTICA 2017, ARTIKINETIC ENTANGLEMENT, challenges every one of those misleading maps. It will be a celebration of our creative intersections, our mutual eddyings, the traces of one another we can't help but walk away with once our time together has happened.Click Here to Submit a proposalCall to Artists!When and Where?Artica 2017 will take place on Saturday, October 7th from noon to midnight and on Sunday, October 8th from noon to 10:00pm. The Cotton Belt Rail Depot and the Mississippi River create a dynamic and historic backdrop for the festival which takes place at 1400 N. 1st St, St. Louis, MO 63102.
