was a rock and roll GOD. He rode his outsider bad-boy image and his populist movement into office with promises to reform and representing the "other" America. What happened next was broken promises and a Trail of Tears. The multiple Tony nominee and Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle winning high-octane rock musical will explode on Plays & Players' mainstage tonight, January 17-February 3 in a Philadelphia premiere production. Performances run Wednesday and Thursdays at 7pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Saturdays at 2pm (except Jan. 19), and Sundays at 3pm. BroadwayWorld has a first look below.
The performance stars Joe Sabatino as Andrew Jackson, who previously appeared in Plays & Players' hit 2011 musical production, A New Brain. He is also an accomplished comedic performer who has performed with various specialty comedy groups, Philly Improv Theater and is a regular with ComedySportz Philadelphia. The performance also sees a return to the Plays & Players' stage of Brendan Norton, the leading actor of A New Brain, and Kristen Norine (Cecily) and Tim Rinehart (Henry Carr) in the 2012 production of Travesties. A cast of new and emerging talent bursting onto the Philadelphia professional theater scene rounds out the rest of the ensemble, including University of the Arts graduates Allison Caw, Jamison Foreman, Sam Nagel, Corey Regensburg, Shannon Remley, and Meggie Siegrist, as well as Max Cove, Billy Kametz, and Josh Totora.
