The Creation of

1776

 

Wed, June 5  1:30 pm

Tickets: $15

In conjunction with the MadKap Productions' staging of the musical opening June 28, learn the story behind this most unusual show! Before its 1969 Broadway debut, a musical had never depicted an historical event so dramatically, melodically -- and even accurately! See the inspiring story behind this remarkable pre-Hamilton achievement, the brainchild -- and only musical -- of a man with a dream, a pop songwriter named Sherman Edwards, who had never even written lyrics before!
