OVERVIEW

A World-Premiere Rock Musical

“Wild and wicked.”
THEATER PICK OF THE WEEK

 LA Weekly

“'Bloody' good time at the Kirk Douglas Theatre.”
The Orange County Register  

“Who am I? I'm Andrew F***ing Jackson!”

Shootouts, smallpox and scalpings—growing up on the American Frontier was killer!   Hoping to kick some British butt and bitch-slap the Spaniards, thirteen-year old Andrew Jackson joins the Army and grows up to become America’s first populist president and greatest rock star since George Washington.

A fast-paced irreverent rock musical about the country we live in and the leaders we choose. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson redefines America’s seventh president, a pioneer of humble stock who invented the Democratic Party, moved Indians west, and played a kick-ass guitar. 

From the director and co-creator of A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant and OBIE Award winning composer Michael Friedman..

“Goofy, daring musical offers Andrew Jackson as emo icon.”
 Los Angeles Times

“Audaciously inventive.”
Variety

“An explosive, soot-black musical comedy  is an absurdist delight reminiscent of Christopher Durang's looniest works.  A wild ride that will have audiences laughing until they cry.”
TheaterMania.com

****CRITIC’S PICK****
“A wildly exhilarating theatrical ride. It forges its own blazingly original artistic identity,  pulsating with wit, melody, energy, and dazzling theatricality.”
Backstage
