Our first time at Hamman Hall. Great seating for everyone. The presentation was wonderful, we will look for other presentations by both this theater group and others at Hamman.

Houston Premiere with Houston talent at its best! Fantastic in every aspect from acting, vocals, music, lighting, direction, costuming, scenery....
It ROCKS Hamman Hall (Rice University)! BEST SHOW we've see all year in our opinion!! Approx. 90...continued

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
