The birth of a nation

Why See 1776?

Pre BroadwayMusicalsLocal

the original historic hip hop hit!

Before hip hop blockbuster phenomenon Hamilton ruled the the Broadway roost, another historic musical got the country's patriotic blood pumping! First premiering on the Great White Way in 1969, Peter Stone and Sherman Edward's historical tuner 1776 garnered much critical acclaim as well as three Tony and two Drama Desk Awards for its gripping portrayal of the birth of modern America. Don't miss this Mariott Theatre production, directed by Nick Bowling and choreographed by William Carlos Angulo.

What is the story?

The story chronicles the direct aftermath of the American Revolution, finding a nation on the edge of a glorious new era but mired down by chaos and confusion. Founding father John Adams races against time and a frustrating tussle with congress to come up with a deal that gives George Washington and his outnumbered armies a legitimate reason to fight. His fellow founding fathers, including Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, come to life as they push, pull and cleverly devise the historic Declaration Of Independence, amidst dazzling show tunes like 'Sit Down, John' and 'Momma Look Sharp'.
