If you aren't familiar with Rice Univ, the venue is a bit hard to find. Its actually only about a block south of Rice Blvd. Parking is across the street in a student/faculty lot that opens to visitors after 5pm. You will have to swipe a credit card on entry and exit.

I wore business casual attire but should have brought a jacket; the theatre was cold.

Houston Premiere with Houston talent at its best! Fantastic in every aspect from acting, vocals, music, lighting, direction, costuming, scenery....

Edgy musical. Draws parallels between Jackson's populist campaign and Obama. Some good performances, but nobody could sing. It failed on several fronts. Noise, bright lights, glitsy, empty (not unlike Obama).

Quotes & Highlights

“[The musical takes] American idealism, resentment and fear of being perpetually misunderstood – adds a ravenous sense of entitlement and mixes these ingredients together in one big, gawky, sexually charged package: America, the eternal teenager. And who better to lead this restless, appetite-driven creature than a red-blooded rock star?” —Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Insanely funny! Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson makes a bid for the smartest, sharpest new musical in years.” —Time Out
“Exhilarating and genuinely thought-provoking. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson oozes political relevance.” —USA Today
