“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.

WestBeth Entertaiment presents Dylan Moran: GRUMBLING MUSTARDOctober 7, 20177:30pm doors / 8pm show$35 Reserved Seating$140 orchestra booth (seats up to 4)$210 balcony booth (seats up to 6)Expect A Master Class In Comedy!
Dylan Moran Returns to the U.S. New Show ‘GRUMBLING MUSTARD’
Dylan Moran – The star & co-writer of cult TV comedy Black Books lives up to his reputation as one of the top names in British comedy!Regarded internationally as the premier comedian of his generation, Moran’s searing observations and sumptuous imagery, painted across a large fraying canvas with curmudgeonly ‘Moranesque’ brush strokes – all delivered with Dylan’s renowned, shambolic charm……
“Moran is thoughtful, debonair and erudite, ambivalent and mildly embarrassed by all the attention. His comedy has the rambling feel of a free-associated yarn, but there’s a sturdy structure that keeps him moving from topic to topic. There’s more on his mind than laughs, or at least, that’s the image he projects before the punch lines fly.” NY Times
“The greatest comedian, living or dead” Le Monde
“Go enjoy the reflections of one of the masters of stand-up comedy. The star of ‘Black Books’ and ‘Shaun of the Dead’, never fails to deliver with his shambolic charm and curmudgeonly manner.” Time Out London Editors Pick!
“Irish comedian Dylan Moran is a huge hit in his native UK, notably for his brilliant role as a cantankerous and drunk, yet lovable book shop owner in the series “Black Books.” His live stand-up is where he’s really making his name now though— consider yourself lucky and don’t miss your chance to see one of the funniest comics on either side of the pond.” SF Bay Guardian Critics Pick!
“Known for his deadpan delivery, misanthropic tendencies and the unkempt black hair that seems to serve as an emblem for how little of a shit he gives. Moran’s observational comedy is some of the cleverest around, tossed off with a winning casualness. Moran isn’t huge here yet—but you may recognize him from the cult sitcom Black Books.” Time Out NY
“He’s glorious – with his keen intelligence and perfectly worded witticisms he’ll have you clutching your sides, begging for more.” LA Weekly
How many highly successful musical artists do you know that have thrived for 20 years without a radio hit, a big budget video, or major label backing? Moreover, have managed to do high-profile TV appearances, own and operate their own independent label since day one, sell several million albums and continue to expand their fan base across the globe each year. They’ve collaborated with such uniquely famed artists David Byrne, Perry Farrell, The Flaming Lips, Anushka Shankar, Femi Kuti, Seu Jorge, Bebel Gilberto, and been featured on major film soundtracks such as Garden State. They’ve headlined top music festivals, such as Coachella and Lollapalooza, and have influenced a whole generation of electronic producers and DJs. If you add these elements together, you can arrive at only one conclusion: Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, aka: Thievery Corporation.
Since 1996, Garza and Hilton have released 8 studio LP’s, 2 remix collections, 2 DJ mix albums, and continued to perform live on 5 continents. Along their unique musical journey, they have virtually defined an entire sub-genre of electronic music. And now they’re ready to embark on yet another journey with the release of their new album, “The Temple of I & I.”
Veteran free-jazz trombonist and composer Steve Swell makes his St. Louis debut, performing with master bassist William Parker, drummer Chad Taylor, saxophonist Jemeel Moondoc, and pianist Dave Burrell. Long associated with New York’s downtown avant-garde scene, Swell began his career in 1975, and since then he has built one of the most expansive and wide-ranging careers in jazz, touring and recording with artists such as Tim Berne and Ken Vandermark. His work as a collaborator and sideman is extensive, and significant partnerships include Anthony Braxton, Cecil Taylor, and John Zorn.
Dave Burrell is known for his solo-piano works as well as his collaborations with Archie Shepp and Pharaoh Sanders,. William Parker is an iconic musician who the Village Voice has called, “The most consistently brilliant free jazz bassist of all time”. In 2013, he received the Doris Duke Performing Arts Award in recognition of his musical impact over the past 40 years. Jemeel Moondoc was a featured soloist for Cecil Taylor. Chad Taylor is a regular collaborator of Marc Ribot and Pharaoh Sanders, and continues his decade-plus role as percussionist in Chicago Underground Duo.
