We had a wonderful time! We were familiar with the musical as we saw the movie many years ago, starring William Daniels. And, I have the soundtrack album.

The sets, voices and acting was first-rate! I was surprised at how good the singing...continued

Definitely the best musical produced by ACT. Excellent cast of locals & the original Asolo Fla production. Engrossing and relevant to today.
Know that this is less a "musical" than a play with music. enjoy!

I remember hating either the play or movie when I was a kid. Contrastingly, this production was fantastic. Energetic, well cast, wonderfully staged and educational. Great for all ages. I'm so glad I gave it another chance.

thought provoking with the present political situation. two musical numbers were extraordinary, the soldier's particularly. It was fine but not in the annals of history of great theatre.

Great new production. All the voices are strong and the ensemble singing is first rate. Great acting as well although I felt like they rushed through the lines especially in the first act. Things slowed down to a reasonable rate in the second act.

Mezzanine seat was awful! Very cramped and uncomfortable.
Ordered ticket many weeks ago at great Goldstar price. But
A.C.T. had us in last row. "1776" musical was fun. J. Zimmerman
(Edward Rutledge) was terrific singing "Molasses to Rum".

My date and I thoroughly enjoyed this show! It was very, very well done. One could easily sense the appreciation from the audience. The subject was very well chosen and unique in its musical setting. The piece sung by the South Carolina...continued

Opening Night Preview - Great seats we had in Orchestra Section. Great singing and good acting. Show was funny. A few songs were a little slow - and maybe picking up the tempo will help a bit. I am sure this will get worked out in the coming 6...continued
