Producer City Lights Theater Company  [Website] Description “Lizzie Borden took an axe . . .” You know the children’s rhyme, but do you really know the story of Lizzie Borden? The Massachusetts spinster was put on trial for dispatching her parents with a hatchet in the summer of 1892, but was later acquitted of the crime. This Goth-rock musical with a riot-girl attitude tells the tale of Lizzie as you’ve never heard it before: a story of revenge, sexual repression, anger, despair and ultimate release.
