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.

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

Beautiful Production
This is a well produced show with great performers. The costumes are splendid, the script is marvelous and the story is spell binding. It is so current! Go see a superb show. Go see 1776.

We were seated in the first row and were a bit concerned about being too close, but for this play, the seating was terrific! We were treated to a great view of the lovely period costumes and a fascinating look at the
actors close-up. Thanks...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

Terrific production values. Great acting and even better singing. Top notch all the way. If you like history you'll love it. I respected the production quite a bit but it was a bit long if you're not a history buff. But quality-wise you...continued

I went with my sister. I was looking forward to it, she was humoring me and went along. The singing was very good and the songs were really catchy. I appreciated how well the characters were written and the characterizations came out. Very well done!

Transportation delays, but box office remains open to 7, so I could still pick up my ticket. I went alone by public transit and could only afford a balcony ticket to a matinee performance, but with a hearing device and binoculars, I had a good...continued

Being in the theater was a special experience in itself because it is over 100 years old. The A.C.T. has a reputation for producing quality - excellent programs and "1776" was one of them. It was not hard to understand why this play received a...continued

I went with a friend who talked it up but I only had a modest interest in seeing this play. However, I was very pleasantly surprised -- it was very good! It is long 2 hrs 45 minutes but it flew by quicker than plays that I really wanted to see....continued
