UVA Drama’s Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson incorporates emo rock and satire to tell the story of America’s seventh president. The musical plays with fact and fiction to give Jackson a rock star persona that strays from sanitized history textbooks, and the songs, performed by a live band on stage, document Jackson’s life, from his humble beginnings to his presidency.

Through 10/10. $12-16, times vary. Culbreth Theatre, 109 Culbreth Rd. 924-3376.
