1776 Musical 1776 at the La Mirada Theatre

Before Hamilton there was 1776, the electrifying musical about the founding of America. This Tony Award-winning smash begins with a deadlocked Congress—sound familiar? Its attempts to adopt the Declaration of Independence are boiling in heated confrontations. Engaging, tuneful, witty and passionate, this Broadway musical shows us the likes of John Adams, Benjamin Frankllin and Thomas Jefferson as we’ve never seen them before—with humor and humanity. Irreverent and topical, 1776 is the musical that celebrates what truly made America great…in the first place.
