Taking “edgy” to the extreme, Tulsa Project Theatre brings the axe—the tool kind, and the guitar kind—to the Doenges Theatre with “Lizzie,” a rock musical about the notorious Lizzie Borden, who was tried for and acquitted of murdering her father and stepmother by chopping them up at their own home in New England in 1892. Borden’s shocking story, a rubbernecker’s dream, was a media sensation throughout America and has resonated through many depictions, from ballets to novels. This version started as an experimental rock/theater hybrid in New York City’s Lower East Side and grew through the 1990s and 2000s into what its creators call “a big, loud rock show with a story.” It toured around the country, turned into a studio album, and now makes its Oklahoma debut with TPT, featuring four women fronting a six-piece rock band in a headbanging homage to a dark American myth. There will be blood.
