The show fashions Jackson as a rebel and a trailblazer. The first "commoner" to be elected President, he was considered the first populist choice. The show showcases Jackson's rise from a humble Tennessee beginning, through his conflicts with the British, his battles with the Indians, and his confrontation with the Spaniards. This is a top notch recording with whip smart lyrics and a pulsing rock beat. Walker shines on his numbers--funny, sexy, powerful--a real leading man. But perhaps one of my favorite numbers is the super clever "Ten Little Indians," a sad, insightful, and blistering song. As the people start to turn on Jackson, the music showcases genuine rawness.
One drawback, however, is that the CD with 13 tracks clocks in at just about 28 minutes. That's pretty short for a complete musical soundtrack and it caught me by surprise. Still, it sounds great and however brief--I love it. KGHarris, 12/10.
BBAJ is a fantastic play that I was lucky enough to catch while it was off-broadway, at the Public Theater. This play brings a whole lot of historical fact and combines it with fast, fun, relatable contemporary music. This should be used to teach children about history and get adults re-energized into loving it.

Opened on B'way in October 2010. We saw it in mid-October. Not surprised that it closed in early January 2011. It is among the worst music that I have ever heard. Read morePublished on January 25, 2011 by fan of Broadway
