The intriguing Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson Broadway musical has made it to the big stage this season and is sure to turn some heads. A somewhat "modified" account of the seventh President, who throws caution to the wind and trade's truth for unbridled entertainment. The story covers Jackson's early years on the Tennessee frontier through his days as our Commander-in-Chief. Audiences have been flocking to The Public Theater in New York to catch the Off-Broadway performance. Now after two successful runs at "The Public" the rock musical is set for an opening at the Jacobs Theatre with previews starting on September 21, 2010. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson announced it would make a Broadway premier on July 15, 2010, and the production is sure to turn a few heads.The Man
Andrew Jackson is one of America's most controversial President. He was born on March 15, 1767 in the Waxhaw Settlement of the colonial Carolinas and by the age of young adulthood had lost his father, mother and siblings. Jackson would go onto to pursue a career in law and establish himself as a prominent attorney within the state of Tennessee. He then met Rachel Donelson, and the couple quickly fell in love, marrying before she officially divorced her husband. The young couple would be plagued with the label of “bigamy," especially through Jackson's political campaigns. Unfortunately, the ridicule would become too much for Rachel Jackson as the vicious accusations worsened her health, and she passed away from heart failure. Jackson would become an American hero through his military leadership and lion-hearted battles. He would lose the 1824 Presidential election to John Quincy Adams while having the popular and electoral votes to win. "Old Hickory" would then invent the Democratic Part with his allies in order to assure becoming Commander-In-Chief in the 1828 election. Of course never imaging his efforts would lead to the Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson Broadway rock musical!The Musical
The musical got its start from an experimental NY based theater company known as "Les Freres Corbusier." The show endured two early workshop productions at Williamstown Theatre Festival (2006) and New 42nd Street Studios, New York (2007). Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson first had its premier in Las Angeles in January 2008. The Center Theatre Group produced the musical for the Kirk Douglas Theatre opening with a cast that included Ben Walker, Sebastian Arcelus, Stephanie D'Abruzzo, Kevin Del Aguila, Darren Goldstein, Greg Hildreth and Jeff Hiller.
The Public Theater then brought the show to New York as an Off-Broadway concert version where it garnered instant attention. The production was brought back for a second run at "The Public" where it began premiers on March 23 , 2010 and continued through June 27, 2010. Later in July it was announced that the Jacobs Theatre would be home to the inventive Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson Broadway musical. With an official opening night on October 13, 2010 much of the "Off-Broadway" cast will transfer including Benjamin Walker in the lead role.
Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is destined to be a delightful surprise this fall. It is a creative, ingenious body of work that turns the history books into comic books and recreates our seventh President as a rock icon. The audience is sent into the Wild West on a journey through the founding of the modern Democratic party seemingly viewed through frat-house eyes. Often times hilarious and many times raunchy yet able to bring across it's intellectual and coherent view of the political landscape within America. Audiences and critics have fallen in love with the Off-Broadway production, and it will be interesting to see how the Broadway show is received.
