Fall River, we have a problem | LIZZIE takes an axe to the end of 2014 Portland theatre season, delivering delectably bloody fun in 1892 style

LIZZIE at Portland Center Stage

On opening night, a rock star energy filled the Armory lobby. And LIZZIE came through big. You know the story, the thrill is watching how they’ll tell it. Crack direction from Rose Riordan keeps action flying gothically toward the blade. Gorgeous visuals and color palette. Geysers of gore. And more.

Thru June 29

On this night, something ain't right.  And there will be blood - in the house of Borden.  Mary Kate Morrissey is Lizzie.  Not Elizabeth - Lizzie.  Photo: Patrick Weishampel.
