What's Happening for June 3, 2013

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
Chance Theater presents the hilarious and irreverent emo rock musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson by Alex Timbers, with music and lyrics by Michael Friedman, and directed by Kari Hayter. The show begins previews on July 5, opens July 12 and continues through August 4. Part history, part rock concert, and part SNL sketch comedy satire, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson reimagines and reinvents the life of “Old Hickory” from childhood to maverick president. Chance is reconfiguring their theater into a grungy Wild West tavern for this fiery musical, and it features many of the artists from last season’s hit musical West Side Story. The cast includes Keaton Williams, Robert Wallace, Zachary Storey, James McHale, Gary Fields, Nick Adorno, Kyle Cooper, Gasper Gray, Ashley Arlene Nelson, Alex Bueno, Chelsea Baldree, Alyssa Harris, Dannielle Green and Janelle Kester, with choreography by Kelly Todd, music direction by Robyn Wallace, scenic design by Christopher Scott Murillo, lighting design by Steve Giltner, sound design by Dave Mickey, costume design by Carin Jacobs, and fight choreography by David McCormick. www.chancetheater.com
