A divided voter base. Republicans versus Democrats. A frustrated electorate fed up with the government. Sound familiar? No, this is not the Trump administration. Meet America’s first populist president, Andrew Jackson.

Written by Alex Timbers and Michael Friedman Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson traces the history of one of America’s most polarizing presidents in 90 minutes of raucous music and hilarious dialogue.

Vancouver Presents contributing editor, Mark Robins, was live at Performance Works with the company of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson during a break in their dress rehearsal.
