BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON, THROUGH NOV. 17
November is Arts Month at CTSA!
Nov. 9 & 10, 14-17
Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson by Alex Timbers
Focusing on the themes of citizenship and justice, the Drama Department begins its season with the musical play Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, which was first produced in Los Angeles in 2008. The musical reconfigures the image of our seventh U.S. president from populist frontier hero to angst-driven rock star. Amidst the skewing humor and catchy tunes, the larger purpose is to probe the power of populism in American culture and to rethink the dangers inherent in current Tea Party trends toward know-nothing politics and brutal governmental policies toward the poor and dispossessed. Adult content may not be suitable for all audiences.
