Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

42nd and Main Concerts

Thursday, August 4, 2016
7:30 PM

Following the success of last year's sold-out Urinetown, Philadelphia and Broadway stars join together once again for a one-night-only SOLD OUT concert reading.

Before Hamilton there was Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson**. Through an audacious mix of historical fact and fiction, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson follows America's first populist president from his early days on the wild frontier to his controversial reign in the White House. With a country divided and an uncertain New World, Jackson begins his steady climb from military strategist to rabble-rouser to President of the United States. Combining a raucous blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality, and an infectious rock score, Bloody Bloody… redefines the man who invented the Democratic Party, paved the Trail of Tears, and ultimately defined himself not by enacting legislation but by thwarting it. The New York Times noted "there is no show… that more astutely reflects the state of this nation than Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson." See for yourself this summer at Theatre Horizon.

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is recommended for ages 13 and up due to strong language, sexually suggestive dialogue, and the abhorrent Indian Removal Act of 1830.

**...but not historically, of course.

Pay What You Decide

We want to encourage more people to come and see unique and conversation-generating works at Theatre Horizon, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether or not you will enjoy it.

As always, tickets* will be available to book in advance, but now there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

All money collected will help Theatre Horizon pay for the art that you see onstage, and we therefore hope you will give generously. Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash at the door or by card at the Box Office.

*Online limit of two tickets per person. For groups larger than two, please call the box office.


Theatre Horizon’s 42nd and Main Concert Series will be priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means you don’t pay until after you have seen the show!
