1776

1776

music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards

book by Peter Stone

We open our ninth season this fall with the Tony-Winning musical about the birth of our nation.  Before there was Hamilton – there was 1776!  As this year’s presidential election nears, we take a look back to the room where it happened 240 years ago in Philadelphia, when our forefathers fought for freedom and signed the Declaration of Independence.  To be newly imagined with a fresh modern spin, see how much – or how little – politics and our politicians have changed since the time of John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.  A history lesson and a night of pure entertainment, 1776 is a “brilliant and remarkably moving piece of theatrical art”.
