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.
Blood, Bloody Andrew Jackson re-imagines the seventh U.S. President as rock 'n' roll man of the people. "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?"
