"Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" Sets History to Rock Music

Feb 17, 2017

Director Chip Joyce is with us to talk about Corn Stock Theatre's production of "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson." The rock musical depicts the personal life and political career of the nation's seventh President. Joyce says the show's emo-rock score fits the charged, tumultuous era in which Jackson lived. He talks about how he first discovered the show, and why he thinks Corn Stock's Winter Playhouse is a good venue for it. He also contrasts it with the more recent musical, "Hamilton."

"Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" continues tonight, tomorrow night and Sunday at the Corn Stock Winter Playhouse in Peoria.
