Philadelphia is hot as a furnace, and the debates inside are no less heated as John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and the rest of the founding fathers argue over independence and revolution.  Congress is divided as egos and agendas collide and common ground is hard to find.  This brilliant, witty, and compelling musical breathes life and song into the story of how we took our first steps as a nation.  Come celebrate the 4th of July and the 240th Anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence with the endearing, entertaining, and patriotic musical 1776!
