An incredible show! The energy and passion of the actors and their timing made this play a pleasure to watch with oh-so-many laugh out loud moments.

Definitely a must see!

Review from Lawrence Helman

Sorry to say I did not like anything about this production.
It was slow and very uninteresting to me both staged and musically.

Some good talent, but not much. BAdly directed and no focus.

Quotes & Highlights

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
