Winner of the 1969 Tony award for best musical! 1776 makes history come alive!
It’s the summer of 1776 and the time is right to declare independence…if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! 1776 follows John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Richard Henry Lee as they attempt to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy. 1776 is a funny, insightful, and compelling drama with a striking score that puts human faces on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons.
