Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, music and lyrics written by Michael Friedman,
and book by Alex Timbers
 
Winner of the Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical Award You may have been told that it was grit, pluck and idealism that built the American empire, but this comic musical re-imagines the 7th U.S. President as a joke-telling rock star and America as a restless, aggressive, pent-up teenager

 
Our post show talk back series {reActions} for Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, will be July 23rd.   This is an informal Q & A session where audience members can engage with the cast and creative team directly after the performance.

Man of LaMancha Jul 14 - 22
buy tickets
 Man of La Mancha, based on Cervantes epic 17th-century novel, Don Quixote.   Set in the context of the Spanish Inquisition, Man of La Mancha is presented as a play-within-a-play. We encounter historical author Miguel de Cervantes in prison, awaiting trial by the Inquisition. Cervantes proposes a trial in which he proves the merit of his manuscript through a reenactment, enlisting his fellow prisoners as characters in his play. Together, they tell the story of the aged Alonso Quijana who believes himself to be a knight errant, names himself Don Quixote, and pursues an obsessive quest to attain an impossible dream. Against all odds, Quixote and his trusty squire Sancho Panza take to the road in a quest to chivalry, and seek out the good and innocent in a world filled with darkness and despair.
