WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

City Stage is performing its final show of the 2013-2014 season in downtown Wilmington.

The company has chosen the rock musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson to round out the year.

It focuses on Andrew Jackson, the 7th U.S. president, who's been reinvented as an "emo" rock star.

The show recreates Jackson's life from his humble beginnings in Tennessee to his time as commander-in-chief.

Other historic characters such as John Quincy Adams, Henry Clay and John Calhoun make appearances in this raucous political commentary, that asks the question is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him?
