"Jackson" leaves me cold

There is creativity and talent lurking about but they are hard to find in this unatractive and over miked production.Satire is hard to sustain for a whole evening and this show cant do that,but it does try to do that. In short well meaning but unsatisfying.

Bloody Bloody Offensive

I had actually rehearsed my opening sentence for this Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson review. I was going to say something self deprecating about how long its taken me to see this highly acclaimed and wildly popular musical. I was prepared to offer the feeble excuse that I dont enjoy the Public Theater as a venue. But it all seems rather moot now. I am loathe to really unleash the negativity, I am tempted to merely point out that I am writing this at 3:00 PM and curtain was at 2:00 PM. For all I know, the last fifteen minutes make up for the offensive, sophomoric first 60 minutes. I would like to say that I am more offended by the all white cast and band making fun of the Spanish, Indians, Gays and Handicapped than I am about having spent $70 for my ticket! Unfortunately, I am just not that evolved. I am furious and wish I knew how and to whom I should demand a refund. I know how risky voicing my outrage is. If the audience this afternoon is any indication, people LOVE this show. My apologies for my offense if you loved this show. If you take away the lights, sound design and set, there is nothing but a fraternity review, or at best, childrens theatre with curse words. I wish I could say that the singing made up for it. I cant. I wish I could say that the movement or dance might save the day. It wont, there was none. How can this happen?! Is this the result of the culture wars? When did my side loose so badly? How does the Public of all place produce such a thing? How does it move to Broadway? How does it pass for quality theatre? Look, I like vulgarity as much as the next potty mouth girl, but cursing in and of itself is just not funny to anyone over 12. Making fun of homosexuals? Really? Using a wheelchair to illicit laughs? Seriously? Making a joke about Susan Sontags death from cancer? Im outta here.

I loved the show. It was loud, crazy, funny, amazing, exhausting, outlandish, foul, clever, entertaining and yet I really am unable to describe it in more specific terms. I need and want to go see it again.

It had everything except the kitchen sink. Cant quite recall any song...but appreciated the work all involved had contributed. Historically it used plenty of dramatic license.

loved it at the Public

hope they can transfer the same vibe they had in a smaller stage at the public.
