I was really looking forward to this production and was disappointed. The script is inconsistent. The satirical parts were funny but the rest was less enjoyable. Some of the actors seemed to be working way too hard which made the delivery...continued

Good music; bad singing. A lot of shouting; very little talent among the cast. Lyrics and screenplay truly BAD! Written for an unintelligent and unsophisticated audience. Gratuitous vulgarity, explicit language with no point, even from the...continued

This production did not have the focus on the story that the script desperately called for. The acting was very comic and clownish. The actors seemed to be wrapped up in being silly instead of being their characters. Most of the characters were...continued

The cast was great, showing a lot of talent as they switched from one character to another. The music at times was distracting. The story line was clever, entertaining, thought provoking and educational. The profanity was over done and did not...continued

We had a good time. It's a bit of a bizarre theatrical production, and the cast succeeds on the whole in making it very entertaining, even though there was some unevenness. We saw it during previews, and they're still obviously working out some...continued

Enjoyable view of the era and the people involved. Done with a spirit of fun. Music fit the storyline. Acting was good too.

More like a comedy skit than a play. Too long.

A really funny take on history, putting a modern day spin on things and making it blatantly obvious that nothing really changes in politics. Raunchy. A good time.

Not a great production, especially for SJSC. Strong ensemble work, especially from some of the Stage Co regulars, but too many different motifs imposed on the storyline. The show got tongue-in-cheek before it had established its credibility with...continued

Very funny. I think it worked on a lot of levels. I am a history teacher and my friends who went with me didn't know much (or care) about that time period and we all liked it.

Thoroughly enjoyed the play and this was our second time. Romero did a beautiful job on the final song!

Thought the cast was excellent, the set was great, and the music rocked, but for most of the songs, the band overwhelmed the singers, so that it was impossible to hear the lyrics. (Either tone down the band or crank up the singers' mikes.) As...continued

San Jose Stage is one of my favorite venues. No matter where you sit, you are right in the middle of the action. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is very cleverly written to lampoon our "celebritization" of political candidates. A good chunk of the...continued
