The Deal

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

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 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.

Hardly a partisan parody, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson strives to cut party lines and analyze America's emotional relationship with its leaders and breakfast-cereal-box mascots. 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?"

Phoenix Theatre

Originally established as the Phoenix Players in 1920, Phoenix Theatre operated out of the Phoenix Little Theatre for almost 30 years before settling into its current location. The 1952 building would become the core of the city’s cultural area, later drawing such establishments as the Phoenix Art Museum and Phoenix Library. The company’s current performance space does little to draw the audience’s attention away from the stage, save for the crisscross of industrial railings that support the catwalks and the retired jerseys of older playwrights.
