Photos: First Look Inside Rehearsal For Broadway-Bound 1776 at A.R.T.

All new rehearsal photos have been released for the Broadway-bound production of 1776 at American Repertory Theater at Harvard University.

Following its premiere at A.R.T., 1776 will begin performances in September 2022 at Roundabout's American Airlines Theatre in New York City before embarking on a 16-city national tour in February 2023.
