Know Theatre is pleased to announce the Off-Broadway hit musical, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson with music and lyrics written by Michael Friedman, and a book by Alex Timbers as the final show of the 2011-2012 season. Recently closed on Broadway, this rock musical makes its regional premier at the Know Theatre March 31 - May 12, 2012.
An audacious mix of historical fact and invention, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson tells the story of America's controversial seventh president using a raucous blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality and an infectious rock n' roll soundtrack. Bloody Bloody examines the attraction and terrors or American Populism through the story of the man who invented the Democratic Party, doubled the size of our nation, and signed the Indian Removal Acts that started the Trail of Tears
