Review: Portland Center Stage’s “Lizzie”
As most of you know, I am a big fan of Portland Center Stage. I love going to the shows and think it is one of my favorite nights out in Portland. So I thought it would be great to host a blogger night out! Luckily PCS was very receptive and the night was on! We were to be attending “Lizzie” 

PCS describes this show as, “A rock-show retelling of the bloody legend of America’s favorite ax-wielding double-murderess and Victorian hometown girl. Lizzie Borden, who has become fodder for jump rope rhymes and TV movies of the week, was a Massachusetts woman who was acquitted in 1892 of the ax murders of her father and stepmother, and lived the rest of her life as American’s first infamous tabloid star. But did she really do it? And if so, why?” 

It was an amazing performance. The 4 ladies who star in the show are spectacular and the singing was on point. I loved the rock-themed song and dance. Really fun for adults, there is some swearing/mature content so possibly not for younger audiences. (+16).

We also got a backstage tour. It was amazing! I never knew how much goes into each show! It was amazing to see all the hard work you don’t see on the stage.



Gross props. 

It was yet another fabulous night out! Thank you to all the bloggers for attending. Hopefully you had a blast!

    That show looks like a lot of fun! I'm a big fan of PCS too. Had season tickets when I qualified for the under 30 discount. Too old now… 🙁
