About Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson tells the story of America's first political maverick. A.J. kicked British butt, shafted the Indians and smacked down the Spaniards all in the name of these United States--who cares if he didn't have permission?
An exhilarating and white-knuckled look at one of our nation's founding rock stars, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson recreates and reinvents the life of "Old Hickory," from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as our seventh Commander-in-Chief. It also asks the question, is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him? What if he's really, really hot?
Directed by Josh Short & David Tessier, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson performances will run July 5-22, 2012 in Providence. Rehearsals start mid-late May with a possible read through scheduled for late April.
