PUBLIC LIFE

BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON



Composer: Music and Lyrics Michael Friedman

Production/Performer History: Broadway 2011 (Benjamin Walker)

Context: Andrew Jackson has just become the 7th President. The toll of the election has lead to the death of his wife. Despite this he vows to be the leader the American People need.

Choice: Hamilton is not the only political pop musical to take Broadway by storm this decade. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a fun, fresh take on the historical musical and a good rock/pop score. Written more for an actor than a singer, another opportunity to make some interesting choices.
