The Making of "Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson"
Veteran arts journalist John Moore followed the making of Ben Dicke's "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" from inception to an opening night postponed by a serious backstage accident that hospitalized the director/starring actor, who suffered four broken ribs, a punctured lung and a gash on the back of his head after falling 6 feet through a trap door at the Aurora Fox’s main stage. Part 1: Before the Fall. Running time: 9 minutes.
Ben Dicke has made an amazing recovery and has rescheduled the show to make its opening at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Aurora Fox Theatre's studio. Thursday evening shows have been added to the run in an effort to recoup lost revenue from the play’s first three weeks.
