Based on a conception of Sherman Edwards

The Tony Award winning musical 1776 is based on the events leading up to the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence. John Adams, disliked by many in Congress, joins Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson to bring forward a resolution for independence that will eventually set America free from England's tyranny. Powerful performances by a cast of 25, and an impeccably crafted script make 1776 as relevant today as it was when first written. 1776 delivers a riveting evening of theatre filled with history, humor, heart and romance.


BWW Blog: James Beaman of Cape Playhouse's 1776 - Clothes Make the Man!
by Guest Blogger: James Beaman - Jun 30, 2014

One of the reasons I became enamored of acting as a child was the opportunity to put on period costumes and to imagine I was going back in time. It's one of the giddy pleasures of being an actor-dress up! And there are few periods that are quite as distinctive and fun as the 18th century. In this week's vlog post, I have my first fitting for my John Adams costume with designer Gail Baldoni. (more...)

Celebrate America: A Spiritual Invasion On The Nation's Capital
by BWW News Desk - Jun 30, 2014

WASHINGTON, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ The United States is in a condition of total moral decline. We have wandered too far from our godly roots. Our leaders have been compromised. The love of money has corrupted good judgment. We are in danger of losing our identity as a country. America has always been seen and known as the home of the free, but it seems that this is no longer the case. Our country must change now! The only answer and the only help now will be from Divine intervention. We have pulled together some of the top spiritual leaders and voices in the United States who will be calling our nation's leaders to repentance to turn our nation around and to come back to God before it's too late; to repair the godless legislation that has played a part in destroying the moral fabric of our nation.

These extraordinary documents offer a window into the mind and heart of this impassioned patriot. And fortunately for us all, they are lovingly preserved by the Massachusetts Historical Society.
