About the event

They knew they would make history, but not what history would make of them. This new production of the Tony Award–winning musical reexamines a pivotal moment in American history with a cast that reflects multiple representations of race, gender, and ethnicity.

What will it take to get two dozen powerfully passionate, exceedingly complicated, and all-too-human individuals to settle their differences, while they hold the very future of a nation in their hands? The Tony Award–winning Best Musical 1776 catapults to blazing new life in a thrillingly new production from directors Jeffrey L. Page (Violet) and Diane Paulus (Waitress). New York Magazine/Vulture says, “It’s an absolute blast!” Suddenly, the songs, humor, and passion of this musical masterpiece soar as never before.

A glorious multiracial cast of female, transgender, and nonbinary actors portray the fiery founders of this country, putting history in the hands of the humans who were left out the first time around—and the result is an epic show of passion, debate, and roof-raising musical fireworks. Experience “a 1776 worth celebrating! It pulsates with energy and snaps with attitude” (Variety). You may never think about our country—who we are and why—the same way again.

Recommended for ages 10 and up.
