JCC CenterStage this weekend will begin a run of "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" which tells the story of our seventh president, using modern rock and emo music. In the show, Andrew Jackson is a loose cannon rock star and his voters are the star struck fans. This show started in Los Angeles in 2008 and quickly moved its way up to Broadway by 2010. The topics they touch on include Jackson's populist stand point during his presidency, and references our modern politics with some comic relief, which we might need during this election time.
"Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" will be performed at JCC CenterStage, 1200 Edgewood Avenue, Saturday, July 16, through Sunday, July 24. Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday shows start at 8 p.m.; Sunday shows at 2 p.m. Admission is $29; $27 for members; $20 for students. More information can be found at jcccenterstage.org.
