Sorry to say I did not like anything about this production.

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.

“Insanely funny! Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson makes a bid for the smartest, sharpest new musical in years.” —Time Out

Description

About the Ticket Supplier: San Francisco Playhouse

The aim of the SF Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theater lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit. Founded by Bill English and Susi Damilano in 2003, SF Playhouse is Union Square’s intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, the SF Playhouse — which won the Bay Guardian‘s 2006 Best Off Broadway Theatre Award and about which the San Francisco Chronicle raved "San Francisco’s newest theatre isn’t just another tiny stage carved out of a storefront…it’s an enticing introduction to a new company" — has become an intimate theatre alternative to the traditional Union Square theatre fare, garnering 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year.
