SEE THIS HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED MUSICAL REVIVAL BEFORE IT HITS BROADWAY!

Just in time for the Presidential election, the six-show series at Houston’s Hobby Center will launch in September with the highly-anticipated Broadway revival of 1776, prior to its arrival in New York City.

Direct from the American Repertory Theater at Harvard University, visionary director Diane Paulus reexamines a pivotal moment in American history in a re-imagining of the Tony Award®-winning musical 1776 prior to its Broadway engagement at Roundabout Theatre Company.

They knew they would make history, but not what history would make of them. Fed up with living under the tyranny of British rule, John Adams attempts to persuade his fellow members of the Continental Congress to vote in favor of American Independence and sign the Declaration. But how much is he willing to compromise in the pursuit of freedom? And to whom does that freedom belong?
