One of my favorite musicals, it was great to see it performed as it doesn't seem to get many revivals. Theu did an admirable job and there were some wonderful moments even though the performances were a little uneven.

Description

John Adams is ready to declare independence. Thomas Jefferson is itching to go home to his wife. Benjamin Franklin is asleep in his chair.
