What will it take to get two dozen powerfully passionate, exceedingly complicated, and all-too-human individuals to settle their differences, while they hold the very future of a nation in their hands? This Tony Award-winning Best Musical is tuneful, witty, and constantly surprising, especially in this “bold and exuberant” (Variety) new production from directors Jeffrey L. Page (Violet) and Diane Paulus (Waitress). You may never think about our country—who we are and why—the same way again.
“A ‘1776’ worth celebrating!” – Variety
“Deeply meaningful. A remarkable revival.” – The Washington Post
“Thought-provoking and an absolute delight.” – The Wall Street Journal
Following the premiere of the revival at the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) at Harvard University and on Broadway at Roundabout Theatre Company the tour of 1776 will make limited engagement stops at major cities across North America. Casting for the national tour will be announced at a later date. For information, please visit 1776musical.com
