What better way to celebrate July 4th than to see a free performance of “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” outside at the Old Stone House in Park Slope? The comedic rock musical takes a fun look at the life of populist idol and seventh U.S. President Andrew Jackson, beginning with his early years in Tennessee and continuing through his controversial presidency.
Presented by Piper Theatre and directed by Nigel Williams, the show takes “textbook history and kicks in electricity, dirty deeds, punk rock rawness,” according to the press release. Piper will be putting on free shows Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 pm from July 3 to July 19.
Performances will take place outside the Old Stone House in Park Slope’s Washington Park at 336 3rd Street between 4th and 5th avenues. You can find out more info here on the Piper Theater website.
