Woodlawn Theatre Black Box features Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
History gets all sexy punk in this alternate universe with parallels to today's political landscape in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, which opens November 8 in the Woodlawn Theatre’s Black Box. The show runs through December 1.
Directed by Matthew Byron Cassi with musical direction by Jaime Ramirez of Bombasta, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson tells the story of America's first political maverick (played by San Antonio’s award-winning actor Anthony Cortino) who kicked British butt, shafted the Indians and smacked down the Spaniards all in the name of these United States – who cares if he didn't have permission? An exhilarating and white-knuckled look at one of our nation's founding rock stars, the show recreates and reinvents the life of "Old Hickory," from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as Commander-in-Chief. It also asks the question: Is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him? What if he's really, really hot?
