Now Available - BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON

An exhilarating and white-knuckled look at one of America’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 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?

BACKGROUND

In this fast paced, rock musical, creators Michael Friedman and Alex Timbers cook up an alternate universe (and draw parallels to today's political/populist landscape) with their musical about the seventh U.S. president, reinvented as an "emo" rock star. 

STYLE & CASTING

If you love the contemporary rock scores of Rent and Spring Awakening, you’ll love the hard-hitting beats and screaming guitar licks in the score of BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON. Within the casting are a number of featured ensemble roles adding up to a medium-sized cast of 15-20 people.

SYNOPSIS

BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON tells the story of Jackson’s political climb in three ‘sections’. Section One shows a younger version of the protagonist as he rails against all the obstacles set before him in life, the Indians, the Congress, taxes, and in general, how much life sucks. Jackson joins the patriots to defend Tennessee and is eventually begged to lead the frontier people to fight off the Spanish and the Indians. In Section Two we see Jackson torn between his love for Rachel and his determination to fight to claim American land. As the section closes we see Jackson win the ultimate fight for power – the Presidential campaign. Finally, in Section Three we see the demise of President Jackson as his plan to move the Indian’s once and for all crumbles, leaving behind a mixed and complicated legacy.
