Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson opened on Broadway October 13, 2010, following a 2008 world premiere at the Center Theatre Group and an acclaimed Off-Broadway run at the Public Theater, where it was extended three times. Starring Tony Award nominee Benjamin Walker in the title role, the Broadway production played 26 previews and 94 performances before closing January 2, 2011.
With a book by Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (book-director) and music and lyrics by the late Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson tells the story of America's controversial seventh president to investigate the attraction and terrors of American populism, using a blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality and infectious emo rock.
