1776

We are all created equal.

It's the summer of 1776, and the nation is at the brink of declaring independence. As our nations forefathers are leading the country into a vote, we are asked to ‘imagine a world where a person’s true merit is valued not by their gender, but by the content of their contribution and the saliency of their ideas.’ – Director, Jenny Leon

Since it first premiered, Tony®-award winner for Best Musical, 1776, written by Peter Stone with music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards, has been described as the most seminal musical in American history. Experience it now 50 years later through these powerful women in a reinvigorating telling that allows us to celebrate those who are willing to fight to protect democracy and our essential humanity. There is no better time than now to feel the impact of this momentous event of our forefathers, now heard through the voices of equally independent and formidable women.
