Arts Daily / 1776 THE MUSICAL


Theatre Converse presents 1776 The Musical May 1 – 5. It’s the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence – if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. 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 a fledgling nation.
