Sorry to say I did not like anything about this production.
It was slow and very uninteresting to me both staged and musically.
It felt amateurish and forced.
Some good talent, but not much. BAdly directed and no focus.

Positively dreadful. Amateurish writing, horrible music & lyrics, and a very weak production. I have thoroughly enjoyed other plays at SF Playhouse, so I hope they get comfortable and start doing good work in their wonderful new venue. But this is...continued

I found it bright and energetic. I learned a lot about Andrew Jackson and the First Nation diaspora of the 19th century. Not a lot of hummable songs to take back with you, but that was ok. It was fun to watch.

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


Ashkon Davaran, a rock star in his own right (check out the number of Youtube hits for “Don’t Stop Believing” during the Giants 2010 World Series), will star in the role of Andrew Jackson.  The eleven-person ensemble that will double as the band includes: Michael Barrett Austin, El Beh, Angel Burgess, William Elsman, Jonathan Fadner, Safiya Fredericks, Gavilan Gordon, Lucas Hatton, Ann Hopkins, Olive Mitra, Daniel Vigil and Michelle Vigil.
