1776: The Musical
Step into the pages of history as John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Richard Henry Lee, and Thomas Jefferson work to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to sign the Declaration of Independence. Despite all odds, these proud, uncertain, petty, noble men are determined to do the right thing for their fledgling nation.
