Music and Lyrics by Sherman Edwards
Book by Peter Stone
Based on a concept by Sherman Edwards

We the people... Is anybody there?

Long before Hamilton, there was 1776! It’s a long, hot summer in Philadelphia, and the Continental Congress is an exhausted and quarrelsome assemblage, at each other’s throats over the burning question of independence from Great Britain. The nation is on the brink of revolution – if only our founding fathers can agree to sign the declaration!

American history blazes to vivid life in this unconventional hit musical, revealing the humor and humanity behind these national icons determined to do the right thing for a fledgling nation. In our modern re-shaping of this hit show, and in the spirit of our mission, casting of characters will be open to all genders, races, and ethnicities.
