Casting has been confirmed for Little Radical Theatrics' latest offering, the New York Regional Premiere of BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON, which is slated to play a limited engagement (May 25-June 2, 2012) at the Westchester Sandbox Theatre in Mamaroneck. The "provocative, scathing and topical satire with wild and zany humor" will be helmed by LRT artistic director Michael Mirra, with musical direction by Ricky Romano, and original choreography by Jessica Bittner.
The cast will feature BJ Markus in the title role of the musical penned by Alex Timbers (book) and Michael Friedman (music and lyrics), Dany Rousseau as Rachel, Danny Carlisto as Adams, Stephanie Viegas as The Storyteller, Steven Taliaferro as Van Buren, Jesse Penber as Monroe, Markiss Robert as Red Eagle, Brian J. Conklin as Calhoun, David Himmel as Clay, Brianna Rehn as Elizabeth, Melissa Pellerano as Toula, Alaina Lauren as the Female Soloist and Alejandro Funes as the Male Soloist.
According to production notes, "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?"
