On Wednesday, September 8, the Broadway cast of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson gave members of the press a taste of the musical, which will begin previews at the Bernard Jacobs Theatre on September 20 in anticipation of an official opening on October 13.

As previously reported, the cast will star Benjamin Walker in the title role, along with James Barry, Darren Goldstein, Greg Hildreth, Jeff Hiller, Lucas Near-Verbrugghe, Kristine Nielsen, Cameron Ocasio, Bryce Pinkham, Nadia Quinn, Maria Elena Ramirez, Kate Cullen Roberts, Ben Steinfeld, and Emily Young.

Written and directed by Alex Timbers, with music and lyrics by Michael Friedman, the show recreates and reinvents the life of "Old Hickory," from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as our seventh Commander-in-Chief.

The production features scenic design by Donyale Werle, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Justin Townsend, sound design by Bart Fasbender, and choreography by Danny Mefford -- all of whom are repeating their duties from the Off-Broadway run.
