With the country divided into rich and poor, Andrew Jackson begins his steady climb from a child on the wild frontier, to military strategist to populist rabble-rouser, and ultimately, to President of the United States. Along the way, he meets his wife, Rachel, takes on the Founding Fathers – and rocks like no political figure has ever rocked before. With a raucous blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality and an infectious rock score, this wildly entertaining 90-minute show asks the question: is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him? What if he’s really, really hot? For mature audiences.
