You're a naughty one, saucy Jack

When life imitates art. There is actually a new MUSICAL in Boston based on the life of Lizzie Borden. I imagine the the first act occurs upstairs where she brutally stabbs her mother. Then, a nice intermission so that everyone can reload on Snowcaps and Ju-ju bees. Finally, act two in the living room where daddy gets the axe.

I'm holding out for a musical based on the Donner Party, myself. With a post-performance bbq.

I'm guessing it has a name like "Lizzie! The Musical" or "Thirty whacks for thirty brothers" or "Blood: a Personal History."

Seems sex and high drama is all the rage on stage -- sex and prostitutes in a Berlin opera made people unhappy. Please. It was a Berlin opera, isn't that pain enough?
