From the producers:
"Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson," an audacious mix of historical fact and fiction, redefines America’s controversial seventh president -- the man who invented the Democratic Party, drove the Indians west, and ultimately doubled the size of our nation -- with a raucous blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality and an infectious emo rock score.
This show had a very well-received run at the Public Theater earlier in 2010. It was developed by Les Freres Corbusier, a NYC-based group devoted to "aggressively visceral theater combining historical revisionism, sophomoric humor, and rigorous academic research" and was originally produced in 2008 by the Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles.
