*Fall River Mayor Robert Correia praised the play saying that it was powerful and exceptionally performed.
“If she was innocent, that was an incredible price to pay,” said Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter, who attended the play with his wife. “If she was guilty, she got what she deserved. But it raises aspects and a side of this story I never had considered.”
“Sweet, innocent, witty and savagely murderous”

Jill Dalton As: Lizzie Borden
Winner Jacoby Award:
MOST OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS
“The nod goes to Jill Dalton for her Lizzie Borden in “Lizzie Borden Live.” She runs the gamut of emotions in her performance from that of a mild Christian woman to a ruthless murderer. Her reenactment of the murder of her mother (it was my stepmother!) and father is a chilling scene in this play and Dalton, who also wrote the script, vividly brings it to the audience.”
Jacob Schaad Jr., The Cape May Gazette
Dalton is nothing less than superb in her depiction of the character, as her Lizzie is alternating sweet, innocent, witty and savagely murderous. The audience is left to decide which Lizzie is the real one.” Cape May Star Wave
“I heartily recommend you see Lizzie Borden Live. . . . complex and most interesting Lizzie, in the person of Jill Dalton.
Cape May Star Wave
“Absorbing performance . . . Dalton runs the gamut of emotions from supposedly mild Christian woman to that of a ruthless murderer.”
Cape May Gazette
“Everything from Jill’s facial features (like Lizzie herself) to the way her voice can change throughout the play makes for compelling and oddly sympathetic viewing.” Exit Zero
“Truly superb . . . the script is fascinating. Jill Dalton is an astonishingly talented actress – she changes her mood and characters in a split second. The play should get a Pulitzer.”
