Photo Coverage: 'Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson' LA Opening

The new musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson had its world premiere Sunday at Center Theatre Group's Kirk Douglas Theatre, in Culver City, and is set to run through February 17th.

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is described as "a dark and funny emo rock musical" written by Alex Timbers with music and lyrics by Michael Friedman. Produced by CTG and The Public Theater, it is directed by Alex Timbers and "tells the story of Jackson's rise from a humble frontier background to battle the British, the Spanish, Native Americans and a young nation's already calcified political system, bringing populism and the Democratic Party to the American people. Using broad comedy and painful irony, Timbers and Friedman breathe life into Andrew Jackson, a man whose larger-than-life character made him the rock star of his age but whose leadership sent a young nation down some troubling paths."

Cast includes Anjali Bhimani, Will Collyer, Diane Davis, Zack DeZon, Erin Felgar, Kristin Findley, Jimmy Fowlie, Patrick Gomez, Sebastian Gonzalez, Will Greenberg, Greg Hildreth, Brian Hostenske, Adam O'Byrne, Matthew Rocheleau, Ben Steinfeld, Ian Unterman, Benjamin Walker and Taylor Wilcox.

Tickets available by calling 213-628-2772, on-line at, in person at the Center Theatre Group box office (at the Ahmanson Theatre at the Music Center in downtown Los Angeles) or at the Kirk Douglas Theatre box office, located at 9820 Washington Blvd. in Culver City, two hours prior to performances.
