Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre
It’s the summer of 1776 and the new nation is ready to explode. This Tony Award-winning musical dramatizes John Adams efforts to convince his colleagues in the Continental Congress to vote to declare our independence from the crown. As poignant today as it was almost 50 years ago, the storytelling keeps you on the edge of your seat. 1776 wraps you in a world of politics and humor while delivering a stunning message of hope and freedom!
