    Old Hickory, Rock Star President

    Ben Brantley

    April 7, 2010: Ladies and gentlemen, the seventh president of the United States is here to take a firsthand look at you the people, and he thinks you’re really hot. You feel the same way about him, right? You’re going to shake, rattle and roll when he makes you the ultimate promise, the one you truly want to hear from anyone who aspires to lead your nation: He solemnly swears to give you the best sex you’ve ever had.

    Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

    April 7, 2010: Who the hell is Andrew Jackson? Ask a dozen scholars about our seventh president's legacy, and you're liable to get a dozen different answers, ranging from ''hero of the people'' to ''genocidal monster.'' Ask anyone else, and he or she will most likely mumble something about the $20 bill. One description of Jackson that probably won't come up is ''someone whose life story I'd like to see adapted into an indie-rock musical."

Sort of early 19th-century ancestors of today's tea party crowd.

    April 7, 2010: Surprises abound throughout Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, the remarkably inventive and often hilarious musical retelling of the life of America's controversial seventh president by Alex Timbers (who also directed) and composer-lyricist Michael Friedman, now at the Public Theater.

    Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

    Matthew Murray

    April 7, 2010: Suspension of disbelief is de rigueur in the theatre, but Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, which has just opened at The Public Theater’s Newman Theater, requires more than most. While watching this show by Alex Timbers (book and direction) and Michael Friedman (music and lyrics), you must force yourself to accept:
