Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director/CEO) in association with the American Repertory Theater at Harvard University (Diane Paulus, Terrie and Bradley Bloom Artistic Director; Diane Borger, Executive Producer) is thrilled to present a new Broadway production of the Tony Award-winning musical 1776, book by Peter Stone, music & lyrics by Sherman Edwards.

They knew they would make history, but not what history would make of them. Fed up with living under the tyranny of British rule, John Adams attempts to persuade his fellow members of the Continental Congress to vote in favor of American Independence and sign the Declaration. But how much is he willing to compromise in the pursuit of freedom? And who does that freedom belong to? Tony Award winner Diane Paulus directs a new production of this Tony Award-winning musical, reexamining this pivotal moment in American history.

Information is subject to change prior to opening night.
