American Repertory Theater of WNY
Presents
Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
September 20October 12

ART/WNY's seventh season starts out with a September Curtain Up! production of the acclaimed punk-rock musical, BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON with music and lyrics written by Michael Friedman, and a book by Alex Timbers. This WNY debut features ART/WNY Artie Award (FLOYD COLLINS) winning director, Jeffrey Coyle and features in the lead role, ART/WNY Artie Award winning Best Male in a Musical (FLOYD COLLINS), Steve Copps as Andrew Jackson.

Director Jeffrey Coyle described the musical, "BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON, first and foremost, is a punk-emo rock concert. It's exciting, fast-paced with fun, crazy music, but it also has an emotional core that runs through the piece. It will make you rock out, but you will also leave with some serious questions about who Jackson was, what this country permitted, and at times demanded him to do and how that reflects where we as a nation are today."

Andrew Jackson, the United States' seventh commander-in-chief and founder of the modern Democratic party, who still smirks on the $20 bill, receives a makeover as one of the nation's founding rock stars during the musical comedy Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. The rollicking rock musical, which split sides on Broadway recently under the tagline "History Just Got All Sexypants," induces contagious guffaws with its sharp wit and unyielding satire that "oozes political relevance," according to USA Today. At roughly 90 minutes, the same time it takes to train a doorbell to ding-dong in French, the musical blares its first chords during Old Hickory's early days on the Tennessee frontier. The guitar-driven production then follows the charming leader as he woos his wife Rachel and then the nation with a populist campaign that reaps an eight-year term in the White House. Along the way, the play points to past and present political figures who embody the charisma and petulance of a rock star, leading the New York Times to remark, "who better to lead this restless, appetite-driven creature [America] than a red-blooded rock star?"

The cast features Copps, Steve Sitzman (who's talent was seen in FLOYD COLLINS and the collaboration with Theatre Jugend, DEAD ENGLISH), Billy Horn, Priscilla Young Anker (JESUS HATES ME), Renee Landrigan, Maura Nolan (JESUS HATES ME), Hannah Sharp (DEAD ENGLISH), Steve Brachmann (DEAD ENGLISH), Matthew Mooney, Matthew Kindley (JESUS HATES ME), Leanne Troutman (FIRST LADY SUITE), Carolyn Lansom, Ian Rowlins, Chris Parada, Michael Wachowiak, Rich Kraemer (FLOYD COLLINS), Sara Kow Falcone and Chris Andreana (FLOYD COLLINS). "I am so excited to be working with this cast. They are a young, energetic and talented group." Coyle said of the cast. "They are a mix of singers, actors and instrumentalists who, as an ensemble, will portray a range of characters, from western settlers to presidents to rock stars.
