“Lizzie Borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks…” August, 1892 – a young woman commits an unspeakable crime. She is brought to trial, but with no witnesses and scant evidence, how could a jury possibly believe her capable of such violence? In this rock retelling of the infamous Lizzie Borden story, four fierce actresses bring you the legend as you’ve never heard it before!

Brothers Wilson and Addison Mizner have the ultimate love/hate relationship. When their father dies, they crisscross America to make name for themselves – digging for gold, writing for Broadway, managing prizefighters, designing homes for rich widows, whatever it takes. Addison longs to find success the “right” way, but can he ever be truly free of his con artist brother?

book and lyrics by Nathan Christensen
music & lyrics by Scott Murphy

June 23-25, 2017
Playing at Christ Church Neighborhood House

Broadcast takes us on a journey through the history of radio. This folksy, chamber musical weaves its wireless way thru the lives of telegraph operators, jingle writers, scientists, pilots, and many more who witnessed this technological evolution first-hand. The silent, invisible sound that had the power to reach out to people across the world is at the center of it all! Telling this tale of yesterday-year in the new age of social media, Broadcast can’t help but invite the question: Does this kind of world wide connectivity ultimately help to unite us as a people or does it facilitate our division?
