Everyone nowadays knows the life of Alexander Hamilton, thanks to the critically-acclaimed musical Hamilton. But what about the life of infamous and controversial president Andrew Jackson? Sure, he forced thousands of Native Americans on the Trail of Tears, and as a result, he has recently been taken off the face of the 20 dollar bill, but he had his moments of glory and he definitely left his mark on American history. Often called the worst “great” president, maybe there is more to the life of the founder of the Democratic Party than his legacy. In this comedic historical rock musical, reexamine the facts as America’s seventh president is reinvented on stage with this production of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.
