Pete Wentz for President! You could probably get more than a few 13-year-old girls to back Fall Out Boy’s eyeliner-wearing bassist to head America’s executive branch, and this rock musical draws parallels between populist politics and emo, the popular emotional (hence the name) post-hardcore punk subgenre. The title character, US President Andrew Jackson, starts the Democratic Party, rises to power, expands the nation and, of course, falls in love—all scored by a driving rock soundtrack. After all, sometimes politics is a little bit like a mosh pit. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson moves to Broadway after a wildly successful limited engagement at the Public Theater.
