  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

    Ben Brantley

    October 13, 2010: Sometimes a funhouse mirror is more accurate than the one in the bathroom. There’s not a show in town that more astutely reflects the state of this nation than “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson,” the rowdy political carnival that is sprawled all over the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater, where it opened on Wednesday night.

  • VARIETY REVIEW OF Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

    October 14, 2010: With their bloody-good "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson," director-librettist Alex Timbers and composer-lyricist Michael Friedman have woven a scathing and topical satire on matters patriotic and political, and they've done it with the sound of emo rock, which might be hard to swallow for some traditional theatergoers. Downtown hit could prove a tough sell in a Broadway house, but the show's commercial producers have demonstrated keen marketing in the past, with diverse fare including "Spring Awakening" and "August: Osage County." Word of mouth will loom large with this one.

  • ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW OF Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

    October 14, 2010: Benjamin Walker for president! The actor's charismatic turn in the title role of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, a provocative indie-rock musical, helped make it a surprise hit at the Public Theater earlier this year. He remains the single biggest reason to see the show now that it's moved uptown for a Broadway run. Walker plays Jackson as a goofy charmer with an unhinged streak — a slave-owning, native-massacring narcissist whom you can almost justify voting for on grounds of sheer star quality.

  • CHICAGO TRIBUNE REVIEW OF Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

    October 14, 2010: “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson,” the fractured, intermittently juvenile and wholly fearless and arresting new Broadway rock musical about the seventh president of the United States, is the consummate musical for the Wikipedia age.
