An audacious mix of historical fact and fiction, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson redefines America's controversial seventh president.  The show is a comedic, historical rock musical that casts the president as an Emo rock star and focuses on populism and the founding of the Democratic Party, the Indian Removal Act, and his relationship with his wife Rachel.  The New York Times noted that "there is no show in town that more astutely reflects the state of this nation than Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.”

Caution: This show contains strong langue, adult themes, and is intended for mature audiences only.
