Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

The Outre Theatre Company, with Managing Director Sabrina Lynn Gore and Artistic Director Skye Whitcomb, announces the final show of their third season, the raucous Tony nominated musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson , by Alex Timbers and Michael Friedman.   This rock-musical /political satire reimagines Americas first populist president, casting him as a rock star.  It creatively blends historical fact and fiction to satirize our own contemporary political landscape. An unapologetic and fast-paced look at one of our countrys founding rock stars, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson reinvents the life of the seventh President of the United States as he invents the Democratic Party, shoves the Native Americans west, and becomes the biggest rock star since George Washington.

Director Skye Whitcomb praises the shows wildly anarchic and aggressively irreverent spirit. Its an absolutely hilarious satire, but sobering and thought provoking at the same time. The problems that we have with our government and our elected officials the hypocrisy, the anti-intellectualism, the naked greed these arent new things. Theyve been around since the beginning of the Republic. We cant return to the good old days, because there arent any good old days to return to.

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson was first presented by Outre as a concert production in the beginning of the 2013/14 season, and audience response was so tremendously positive that the company decided to give it a full production. In what has become an Outre trademark, Musical Director Kristen Long will incorporate the band into the action of the production, and the performances will continue Outres goal of making theatergoing an immersive experience.

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson runs May 1 through May 17, 2015, with performances at 8 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2 pm on Sundays. Performances will be at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in the Abdo New River Room. Tickets range from $20 for students to $30 for general admission, and can be purchased through the Broward Centers AutoNation Box Office by calling 954-462-0222, or online at
