Winner of London's Olivier Award for Best New Play, this gripping and poetic drama envisions the events that might have taken place the evening before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. The fictional reimagining begins on April 3, 1968, as King finishes delivering his impassioned "I've Been to the Mountaintop" speech. Exhausted, he retires to room 306 at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where he encounters a spirited young maid with whom he forges an unexpected relationship. During a conversation that ranges from the personal to the political, King finds himself confronting his own destiny and the fate of the very nation he's devoted his life to. Learn More

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
