'1776' on stage now at Huntington Playhouse
Huntington Playhouse currently is running the patriotic musical “1776” now through August 5. Performances are on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. with one Sunday matinee on August 5 at 2 p.m.
It's the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence...if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! With a brilliant score by Sherman Edwards, this musical follows John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, and Richard Henry Lee and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they try to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence.
The show is directed by Dolly Ballou, with musical direction by Kira Seaton and choreography by Jessica Atwood. The show also features managing director Tom Meyrose in the role of John Adams. The production is co-sponsored by Westlake Village Retirement Community.
Reservations are strongly suggested and may be made by calling the box office at 440-871-8333. Huntington Playhouse is located at 28601 Lake Rd. in Bay Village, and is an affiliate of the Cleveland Metroparks.
