Why See 1776?
This town is big enough for the two of them
Join Phoenix Productions this winter for a brand new revival of Peter Stone and Sherman Edwards' 1969 Tony-winning hit that shines a light on the incredible days leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
Fractious and compelling, these historically significant events are examined in clever songs and witty dialogue, including 'Sit Down John' and more. Hamilton might be across town giving us the inside scoop on one founding father, but prepare to give 1776 a chance to show you Ben Franklin, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson in an entirely new light. Educational and thrilling, this boundary changing musical is a wonderful night out for all the family.
