1776 @ The Media Theatre
Wednesday, April 27, 2016 -- Sunday, May 1, 2016
1776 Book by Peter Stone Music and Lyrics by Sherman Edwards Based on a concept by Sherman Edwards In this insightful, compelling, and humorous musical, we witness the birth our nation! It's the summer of 1776 and our country is just at the brink of declaring independence...but John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Richard Henry Lee, and Thomas Jefferson must convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for it and sign the Declaration of Independence. It's all right here in Philadelphia, putting a human perspective on the men behind the iconic images we know and love. Each of them were determined in their effort even though each had qualities which we may all find within ourselves such as pride, fear, irritability, pettiness, and finally appreciation and respect as all bond together to create the most seminal event in our history. Songs include "Cool, Cool Considerate Men" and "Momma, Look Sharp" For more info: The Media Theatre
