Celebrate the founding of America in 1776, where John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin fight for freedom and draft the Declaration of Independence.

The story focuses on John Adams, as he attempts to persuade his future fellow Americans to vote for independence and break free of England. The original production was nominated for five Tony Awards and won three, including the Tony Award for Best Musical. It’s a riveting musical filled with history, humor and romance.
