I am working on a piece which I feel might be of interest to the Being Feminist readers. Currently producing a show in LA called LIZZIE, a sort of rock retelling of the Lizzie Borden case, that's told with full recognition of her lesbian orientation. The show features an all female cast and has its musical roots in rock and riot grrrl punk. Check out our website/contact me if you haev any questions:
Here's our rundown/show dates:
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. Her story has become an American legend, and now her story sings.
A rock concert meets historical true crime storytelling. You know the rumors, now discover Lizzie's truth. This September, experience one of the most notorious murder trials in raucous rock musical with a brutal edge.
From writers Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer, Alan Stevens Hewitt, and Tim Maner, this musical piece of American mythology has been welcomed by audiences around the world. And now, Lizzie is on her way to Los Angeles.

LIZZIE is ferocious, powerful musical theatre as rock concert: Chock full of rage, sex, betrayal, and bloody murder, an American mythology set to a blistering rock score. A radically new American musical with a sound owing less to Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber than to Bikini Kill, The Runaways, and Heart.
