This rowdy and irreverent musical imagines President Andrew “Old Hickory” Jackson as a rock star. American history has never been this sexy! Andrew Jackson comes of age in late 18th-century Tennessee. Clipping through his life, the play shows the death of his family and his subsequent enlistment in the military. The Battle of New Orleans transforms Jackson into a national hero. He becomes governor of Florida and runs for President in 1824 but loses due to political maneuvering. After four years of political exile, he forms the Democratic Party and wins the 1828 election. This satire makes a spectacle of politics and populism, questioning how important it is to be a great leader when you’re already hot and popular.
