Wed 22 February-Sun 12 March 2017

An unmissable opportunity to see the UK premiere of Tim Maner, Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer and Alan Stevens Hewitt’s rock musical LIZZIE.

A show of this calibre is a coup for Greenwich Theatre. A big-budget production at off-West End prices. Grab a ticket while you still can as the run is tragically short.
Broadway Baby

On a sweltering summer morning in 1892, in a small New England city, a prominent businessman and his wife were brutally 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.

Now turned into an acclaimed rock musical, Fredericia Teater transfer the show to Greenwich for its eagerly anticipated UK premiere...

This is the greatest American musical since ‘Sweeney Todd’. I have seen it twice this week, in the wonderful production by the American director, Victoria Bussert, that is now playing for just three weeks at Greenwich Theatre, and I do not make that claim lightly. Under no circumstances should you allow yourself to miss it… offering top quality adventurously experimental musical theatre at a budget price like this is something the National Theatre does. And this is as good as anything you might see in the Olivier or Dorfman.

Lizzie is absolutely brilliant, fantastic, right up there with the best of them… Don’t miss it if you can help it, it is exceptionally good.

Lizzie is in terrific hands with a powerhouse quartet of female musical theatre voices. Bleu Woodward (last seen in the Kinky Boots ensemble) brings a naïvety to Alice, as well as a hidden strength when she begins to have her suspicions about Lizzie's actions. Jodie Jacobs is excellent comedy value as Bridget, the maid, and seems more than willing to engage with the audience whenever she possibly can. Eden Espinosa is unsurprisingly a powerful and charismatic presence as Emma, as well as putting across the character's protectiveness towards her younger sister. In the titular role is Danish actress Bjørg Gamst, who originated Lizzie in the original production. She truly inhabits her character, taking her on an incredible path from innocent and abused girl to strong and confident woman… A blast of fresh, but bloody, air.

A gothic rock ritual with a ‘riotgirl’ attitude.
