1776 The Musical


The National Headquarters in collaboration with Louisville Theatrical Association - Music Theatre Louisville and Stage One presents the musical “1776.”


1776 logo

American history blazes to vivid life in this funny, insightful and unconventional Broadway hit, which The New Times has called “consistently exciting and entertaining”. Written by Peter Stone (Book writing: Two by Two, The Will Rogers Follies, Screenplays: Sweet Charity, The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3).

1776 follows John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Richard Henry Lee, and Thomas Jefferson as they attempt to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote to free their fledgling nation from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence...if only the founding fathers could agree!
