Join Faves founder Terri Paddock for Lizzie post-show Q&A, 23 February

The cast of Lizzie

Find out more about the process of putting on a American rock gothic musical in Denmark and London. Join #StageFaves founder Terri Paddock for an exclusive post-show Q&A with the cast of LIZZIE on 23 February...

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.

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, the Runaways, and Heart.

Broadway star Eden Espinosa – well known for playing Elphaba in Wicked, Maureen in Rent, and the title characters in Evita, Brooklyn the Musical and Flora the Red Menace – makes her London stage debut as Emma Borden alongside three other dazzling divas: British #StageFaves Jodie Jacobs and Bleu Woodward and Dane Bjorg Gamst as Lizzie Borden.

LIZZIE marks the start of a new and exciting collaboration between British-based company Aria Entertainment, headed by producer Katy Lipson, and Denmark-based Fredericia Theater, where the production, helmed by artistic director Søren Møller, first opened in January. The collaboration builds on Aria Entertainment’s support and development for new musicals both in the UK and overseas and Fredericia Theater’s desire to continue mounting acclaimed work on an international scale beyond their home in Fredericia, Denmark.

For the LIZZIE post-show Q&A after the evening performance on Thursday 23 February 2017, Terri will be joined by the four-strong cast: Eden Espinosa, Jodie Jacobs, Bleu Woodward and Bjorg Gamst. Don't you think we need to get some tweeting going?!
