Book by Alex Timbers

In a re-imagining of early America’s years of growing pains, Andrew Jackson is elevated to rock star status. We’ll watch this Tennessee son grow from childhood to governor of Florida after his controversial Native American relocation plans and the Battle of New Orleans. We’ll see his presidential bid denied after winning the popular vote, then a triumphant Comeback Tour with the formation of the Democratic Party which seats him firmly in the White House. Hero or murderer, patriot or scoundrel, Jackson’s legacy is left for the audience to decide.

All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. except the 2 p.m. Sunday matinee $10 for general admission, $7 for senior citizens (65+), $2 for Rhodes students, $5 for all other students (college/high school)
