To my knowledge this is indeed all female. I know a current Hello, Dolly star went in for John Adams but sadly didn’t book it.

The Equity audition call for 1776, which occurred on May 31, 2019, requested "People of all racial and gender identities."

The characters were "very verydated"? It takes place in 1776 -- what exactly were you expecting??

Shakespeare, Chekhov, Moliere, etc must REALLY send you over the edge! LOL"


It was the direction, imo. The characters don't actually sound boring on stage. I do think it's a great show, but the movie didn't translate well for me. I feel the same way about watching Shakespeare on screen - it doesn't completely work. His stories and characters are too theatrical (as intended).

Huh? Of course, Shakespeare's stories and characters are theatrical; there was no other medium when he wrote them.  What Shakespeare films have you seen?  Some of then work as films and others do not.

I have yet to see a single advertisement of the musical that states it will be an all female cast. If Ms.Paulis is indeed doing this and changing the expected show that much, don't you think they should be telling the audience what they are buying tickets to?

They are buying tickets to 1776. Did WSS advertise the lack of the ballet or I Feel Pretty? Or the last reviaval ADVERTISE now with more spanish?

Advertisements are to sell tickets.

And I haven't seen ANY ads.
