It's been hours and I'm still talking about it. This play brought history to life. Every single role was poignant and meaningful-I have never given John Adams the credit he is due! The actor who portrayed him was PHENOMENAL. Ben Franklin and John Dickinson were brilliant. Abigail Adams was powerful. The soldier's scene was phenomenal. I don't want to leave anyone out because everyone's role had meaning. This as a beautiful and honest telling of our country's birth.

5.0 star rating Franny Ryan from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Truly amazing singing, acting and choreography. My daughter wanted to listen to the movie soundtrack from the 70s on the drive home because it was so bad in comparison to what we just saw and heard.

4.0 star rating from Des Moines, Iowa


This was my first time to see 1776 and I was not sure how it would stand up next to Hamilton. I enjoyed the recasting .....this is one of the best things abt the show. I found the second act more compelling than the first and Molasses to Rum was powerful. Well worth your time...thought provoking and extremely well presented.

2.0 star rating R.O. from Chicago, Illinois


The point of this production was to apologize to the Native and African Americans for injustices of the past. There's a time and a place and when you're paying this much for tickets to see a show that you really loved as a kid, it pisses you off. Singing was really good though.

I only gave 1775 2 stars because the performers were talented. But combine a boring script with a horrible adaptation that leaves you falling asleep for two hours, and you are in for an excruciating painful evening. The backdrop keeps track of the calendar as the show moves closer to July 4, and every time it changed, everybody around me groaned because it was moving so slowly. Everybody was in a hurry to get to July 4th and get out of dodge. Also, the show neglects the beautiful occasion that American independence, flawed or not, represented for the future of humanity. Some purple-haired junior high social studies teacher from the D list definitely influenced the adaptation.

2.0 star rating Margaret O'Banion from Des Moines, Iowa


Very disappointing having seen the original at least 3 times. Did not enjoy having a revamp of the show having an all female cast. It didn’t work at all for me. Enjoyed the original script and characterizations far more. Having an all female cast took away from the production. It took much of the historical accuracy out of the show. As the saying goes, LIf it ain’ broke don’t fix it.” The write up in the program sound like the focus of the show as meant to be a political statement rather than actress’s being true to the original script. I don’t need to know the gender or sexual background’s. Just hire good, talented actors/actress. The audience doesn’t need to be told the casting rationale. Since I found it not nearly as entertaining as the original and I was disappointed in the show I left at intermission.

1.0 star rating Ray Ott from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Not entertaining! From the start the show failed capture the audience. The significance of the event failed to leave an impression. The only redeeming entertainment was the excellent voices in the cast. Recommend spending money on a different show.
