⭐ RUMOUR – LIZZIE THE MUSICAL – UK REVIVAL SET TO RETURN ⭐
The critically-acclaimed Hope Mill Theatre revival of the punk rock musical LIZZIE is set to return, it has been rumoured.
After successful runs at the Hope Mill Theatre, Southwark Playhouse and the proceeding UK tour, plans are reportedly in motion for a regional return this autumn.
LIZZIE explores the life of Lizzie Borden, who was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe in the late summer of 1892. The musical delves into her complex psyche and speculates on the motivations she may have had: loss of inheritance, history of sexual abuse, oppression, and madness.
Lizzie, along with her older sister Emma, maid Bridget, and neighbour Alice, bring to life the infamous story supported on stage by an all-female band.
LIZZIE premiered in New York in 2009 at The Living Theatre, and received its London premiere in 2017 at the Greenwich Theatre with the Danish production.
LIZZIE has swung her axe in over 60 cities, in 6 countries, in 5 languages, across 4 continents and has been honoured with dozens of awards including 8 Best Musical Awards! (and she’s still swinging…)
LIZZIE has music by Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer and Alan Stevens Hewitt, lyrics by Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer and Tim Maner and a book by Tim Maner.
Fingers crossed! ! !
