City Theater Company in Wilmington Delaware kicks off its 24th season with the Delaware premiere of Lizzie, a blistering rock opera based on the life and legend of the notorious accused murderess Lizzie Borden. Four women front a six-piece rock band to tell the tale of rage, sex, betrayal, and murder!
This is a hard-rock musical. So don’t think “Broadway rock” like Rent… think hard-rock like Ozzy, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Aerosmith, and Heart. It’s loud, it’s bloody, and it’s AMAZING.
While this isn’t really a Hot Breakfast! gig, Jill will be on stage lending her rockin’ pipes to this incredible new musical… and Matt will be working backstage. So come support your favorite dork-rock power duo! Jill plays Lizzie Borden’s older and angry sister Emma Borden.
