Two people died on that day in 1892, but Lizzie continues to live on in American folklore. An edutainment production, written by Fran Baron and directed by Joseph Zamparelli, Jr., the show will feature Lynne Moulton and Joseph Zamparelli, Jr. in multiple roles. The performance includes a mock trial that invites the audience to participate by questioning Lizzie and deciding her guilt or innocence. Did she or didn’t she?
