The John W. Engeman Theater presents 1776 now through Sunday, November 6, 2016. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Ring in the election year with 1776, the classic Tony Award-winning musical about how the founding fathers drafted the Declaration of Independence and gave birth to a new nation. A unique show that presents John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin in all their fractious, fascinating complexity, 1776 features beloved songs such as "Sit Down, John," "Cool, Cool, Considerate Men," and "He Plays the Violin." This show will remind you of how far America has come - and how little we've changed.

1776 is directed by Igor Goldin (Off Broadway: YANK!, With Glee, A Ritual of Faith, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Crossing Swords) and musically directed by Eric Alsford (National Tours: Nunsense, Mamma Mia!, Off Broadway: That's Life, I Love You You're Perfect..., Naked Boys Singing.). Trey Compton is the Assistant Director.

Dolce the Engeman Theater's Producing Artistic Director.
