BWW Reviews: Solemn and Unusual: 1776 at Toby'sBWW Reviews: Solemn and Unusual: 1776 at Toby's
by Jack L. B. Gohn - May 18, 2015

There are times it's hard to credit that 1776 is even a musical. In this retelling of the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence, there is some singing and some dancing, and even some laughs, but little effort to follow the tried-and-true path to rousing musical success. This is fundamentally a tale of a group of men sitting in a room debating, and Peter Stone, author of the book, gives us - a group of men sitting in a room debating. And yet the work has considerable power and appeal, and it is not strange either that it won the Tony for Best Musical in 1969, or that Toby's has revived it. (more...)
