1776 is a most striking, most gripping musical. I recommend it without reservation.

Why See 1776?


The Original Patriotic Musical

A beloved mainstay of musical theatre magic in St. Louis, The Muny continues its 101st season with the musical that got the country's patriotic blood pumping long before the hip hop blockbuster phenomenon Hamilton ruled the the Broadway roost. First premiering on the Great White Way in 1969, Peter Stone and Sherman Edward's historical tuner 1776 garnered much critical acclaim, as well as three Tony and two Drama Desk Awards, for its gripping portrayal of the birth of modern America.

Last performed on The Muny stage twenty years ago, 1776 is sure to captivate St. Louis audiences once more with its pulse-quickening action, intelligent, often humourous dialogue and a score filled with soaring melodies and original lyrics. The story chronicles the direct aftermath of the American Revolution, finding a nation on the edge of a glorious new era but mired down by chaos and confusion. Founding father John Adams races against time and a frustrating congress to come up with a deal that gives George Washington and his outnumbered armies a legitimate reason to fight. His fellow founders come to life as they push, pull and cleverly devise the historic Declaration Of Independence, amidst dazzling show tunes like 'Sit Down, John' and 'Momma Look Sharp'.
