Camelot Theater: “1776”, 6/20 thru 7/22/12

1776 June 20 – July 22

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

The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. It’s the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence, if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! Follow John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they attempt to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for independence by signing the Declaration of Independence. 1776 puts a human face on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures determined to do the right thing for our fledgling nation.
