With a book by Timbers, who also directs, and music and lyrics by Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson will run May 5-24 at the Public.
The cast features David Axelrod, James Barry, Darren Goldstein, Greg Hildreth, Jeff Hiller, Lisa Joyce, Lucas Near-Verbrugghe, Bryce Pinkham, Maria Elena Ramirez, Kate Cullen Roberts, Ben Steinfeld, Benjamin Walker and Colleen Werthmann.
According to press notes, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson: The Concert Version "is a fast-paced entertainment that takes a sharp, irreverent look at America's seventh president, Andrew Jackson. This satirical epic reveals questions about the country we live in and the leaders we choose." The rock musical made its world premiere in January 2008 at the Center Theatre Group.
The Public LAB production will have scenic design by Donyale Werle, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Justin Townsend and sound design by Bart Fasbender.
