Description

Under the helm of sought after Los Angeles theatre director Todd Nielsen, the Tony Award-winning musical 1776 will be presented at the Glendale Centre Theatre. With music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards, book by Peter Stone, and musical direction by the award-winning Steven Applegate, 1776 premiered on Broadway in 1969 and is based on the events leading up to the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence. John Adams, disliked by many in Congress, joins Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson to bring forward a resolution for independence that will eventually set America free from England’s tyranny. Powerful performances and an impeccably crafted script make 1776 as relevant today as it was when first written. Add a memorable score, a spectacular cast of 25… and 1776 delivers a riveting evening of theatre filled with history, humor, heart and romance.  

Regional musical theatre favorites Peter Husmann (as John Adams), John Butz (as Benjamin Franklin) Jeff Drushal (as Thomas Jefferson), and Victoria Strong (as Abigail Adams) lead a stellar cast which also includes: Nathan Armstrong (Robert Livingston), Aldo Benalcazar (Leather Apron), George Champion (John Hancock), Mario DiGregorio (Col. Thomas as McKean), Clay Dzygun (James Wilson), Christopher Gomez (Dr. Lyman Hall), Kyle Kelley (George Read), Michaelia Leigh (Martha Jefferson), Jason Lewis (Dr. Josiah Bartlett), Hisato Masuyama-Ball (Dr. Samuel Chase), Patrick McMahon (Roger Sherman), Danny Michaels (Charles Thomson), Peter Miller (Andrew McNair), Jim Molinaro (Joseph Hewes), Michael Shaughnessy (Rev. John Witherspoon), Scott Strauss (Caesar Rodney), Adam Trent (Lewis Morris), Bryan Vickery (Richard Henry Lee), Andrew Wade (Courier), Jason Webb (John Dickinson), Don Woodruff (Stephen Hopkins), and Joey Zangardi (Edward Rutledge).
