Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson - 2010 - Broadway

$51.50 - $131.50

This spring's biggest downtown hit was undoubtedly Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. The New York Times called it "the season's best musical” and audiences flocked to The Public Theater to see what the daring young creative team Alex Timbers (writer/director) and Michael Friedman (composer/lyricist) had cooked up. Now, by populist demand, their bloody brilliant show is packing up its tight, tight jeans and heading to Broadway!



In Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, rising star Benjamin Walker reprises his role as 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 enough reason to elect him? What if he’s really hot?

Featured Reviews For Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson


Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson - Backstage
In its transfer to Broadway, "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" has gotten even wilder since its incarnations at Off-Broadway's Public Theater last season. This raucous combination political cartoon, rock concert, and extended "Saturday Night Live" sketch now fills the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre with irreverent wit, in-your-face satire, and lots of sweaty sex appeal. Alex Timbers' off-the-wall book and direction and Michael Friedman's pulse-pounding score provide the first two elements, and Benjamin Walker in the lead delivers the third.

'Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson' Is Bloody Brilliant - am New York
There could not possibly be a more relevant time for "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" - a relentlessly silly rock musical about the first unofficial Tea Party candidate in American political history - to premiere on Broadway.

Have you longed to smell like a president? BLOODY BLOODY star Benjamin Walker has your solution. He takes viewers on his own rendition of the popular Old Spice commercial, but instead of promoting the Old Spice scented bodywash to 'Smell like a man,' he promotes Old Hickory, to 'Smell like a f**king president,' of course.
