Oct 21, 2016 - Oct 23, 2016

Fri-Sat 7:30 pm, Sun 2:30 pm

Just in time for the 2016 Presidential Election, witness the birth of a nation as our forefathers struggle to craft the Declaration of Independence, signed 240 years ago! This seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. 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. Presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
