Pittsburgh Public Theater presents, "1776," a musical play based on the book by Peter Stone, music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards and directed by Ted Pappas.
The founding of our nation comes to star-spangled life in this grand Tony Award-winning Best Musical. In 1776 you'll see the heroes of the American revolution like you've never seen them before-in rousing songs and dances, comic encounters, and impassioned politics. The stakes have never been higher as John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin wrangle to get everyone on the same page-namely, the Declaration of Independence. Theatrical fireworks will fill the O'Reilly Theater in this thrilling story of how we went from 13 colonies, to the United States of America.
