A Cover Story: Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

PlayBlog   A Cover Story: Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
Following a hit Off-Broadway run at the Public Theater, the emo-rock musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson begins performances at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre Sept. 20.

According to producers, "A.J. kicked British butt, shafted the Indians and smacked down the Spaniards all in the name of these United States—who cares if he didn’t have permission? An exhilarating and white-knuckled look at one of our nation’s founding rock stars, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson recreates and reinvents the life of 'Old Hickory,' from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as our seventh Commander-in-Chief. It also asks the question, is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him? What if he’s really, really hot?"

Alex Timbers directs a cast led by original star Benjamin Walker.
