1776 THE MUSICAL
music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards and book by Peter Stone
APRIL 25 – MAY 19, 2019
1776 The Musical, celebrating its 50th Anniversary, is often called “America’s Musical” as it celebrates what truly made America great…in the first place. This funny, insightful and compelling drama with a powerful score tells the legendary story on the meeting of the Continental Congress and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This production is the first regional performance of the show with an ethnic & age-diverse group of women portraying the original members of congress.
Irreverent, humorous and topical, this historically accurate musical—which was a primary inspiration for the Broadway hit, Hamilton–brings John Adams (Pamela Rose Mangus), Benjamin Franklin (Mary Kate O’Connell), Thomas Jefferson (Anne DeFazio), and the rest of the Second Continental Congress to life with humor and humanity.
