Witness the birth of a nation as our forefathers struggle to craft the Declaration of Independence in this Tony Award-winning BEST MUSICAL. 1776 is funny, insightful and compelling story-telling with a striking score. 1776 puts a human face on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures, determined to do the right thing for a fledgling nation. A terrific and fun history lesson for the whole family set to music!
