Overview

What will it take to get two dozen powerfully passionate, exceedingly complicated, and all-too-human individuals to settle their differences, while they hold the very future of a nation in their hands? American Repertory Theater at Harvard University/Roundabout Theatre Company’s new production of the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, 1776, is a tuneful, witty, “bold and exuberant” (Variety) reexamination of a pivotal moment in American history from directors Jeffrey L. Page (Violet) and Diane Paulus (Waitress). 1776 comes to Philadelphia with a cast that reflects multiple representations of race, gender, and ethnicity. You may never think about our country—who we are and why—the same way again.

AUDIENCE GUIDANCE
This production contains stylized representations of racialized violence, particularly related to enslavement. Additionally, this production contains haze, a brief strobe effect, a non-firing replica firearm, and a gunshot sound effect.

"A DYNAMIC, CAPTIVATING BROADWAY MUSICAL ABOUT TO WIN SOME 2023 TONYS."
-Boston Herald

"The great power of this 1776 will stay with you and will resonate on Broadway and across the country."
-The Boston Globe

“A spine-tingling production brings critique front and center and infuses the story of the Continental Congress with 20/20 hindsight.”
-Variety

“This electrifying production is no ordinary history lesson. There’s an infectious buzz in this energetic ride down a familiar path with an extraordinarily talented cast!”
-NPR (WBUR)
