Lizzie

Lizzie

Lizzie is four women fronting a six-piece rock band. Lizzie is rage, sex, betrayal, and bloody murder. Lizzie is American mythology set to a blistering rock score. Lizzie is a new American musical with a sound owing less to Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber than to Bikini Kill, Runaways, and Heart.

Lizzie Synopsis:

On a sweltering summer morning in 1892, in a small New England city, a prominent businessman and his wife were axed to death in their home. Their daughter Lizzie Borden was the prime suspect. Lizzie’s trial was a coast-to-coast media sensation, and her story has become an American legend.

Eden Espinosa
Eden Espinosa replaces Ciara Renee in UK premiere of Lizzie the Musical
Tuesday, December 6, 2016

It has been announced that Broadway star Eden Espinosa will join the cast of the UK premiere of new rock musical Lizzie which runs at the Greenwich Theatre in 2017 following a run at Fredericia Teater, Denmark in January 2017. She replaces the previously announced Ciara Renee who has withdrawn from the production due to a scheduling conflict.

Our Review

Whilst London audiences are used to new musicals arriving in the UK via New York and North America it's certainly a novelty to welcome one following a premiere in Denmark. The UK premiere of Lizzie carries with it all the surface-level sensibilities of a rock musical, namely a melodramatic score with a gutsy story to match.
