History comes alive at St. Bart's! The Tony winning Best Musical 1776 opens St. Bart's Players' 80th Season, November 8-18. The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. It's the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence... if only our founding father can agree to do it! 1776 follows John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson as they attempt to convince the members of the Second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence. One of the most beautifully crafted musicals ever, 1776 is funny, insightful and compelling. 1776 will be staged in St. Bartholomew's Church on Park Avenue at 51st Street in Manhattan.
