The New York regional premiere of rock musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson with book by Alex Timbers and music & lyrics by Michael Friedman takes the stage for Little Radical Theatrics, Inc. May 25-June 2. Directed by Michael J. Mirra with musical direction by Ricky Romano and choreography by Jessica Bittner, the show's executive producer is Stephanie Viegas, with assistant producer and production manager Jovan C. Richards.
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?
