Before Hamilton there was 1776, the electrifying musical about the founding of America. Featuring a diverse contemporary cast, this Tony Award-winning smash begins with a deadlocked Congress – sound familiar? Its attempts to adopt the Declaration of Independence are boiling in heated confrontations. Spoiler alert: by the evening of July 3rd, the two sides are still miles apart! But remarkably, these contentious Founding Fathers harness their shared determination to do the right thing for a fledgling nation. See how they get it done!
Engaging, tuneful, witty and passionate, this Broadway musical shows us the likes of John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson as we’ve never seen them before — with humor and humanity. Irreverent and topical, 1776 is the musical that celebrates what truly made America great… in the first place.
“A show for the generations – not to be missed!”
