The musical 1776, which recounts the final days before the Continental Congress declares U.S. independence from Britain, won the 1969 Tony Award as Best Musical. Brent Spiner is starring in a Broadway revival that just moved to the Gershwin Theatre, the biggest on Broadway.How has the story held up? Does it make the characters seem like flesh-and-blood or does it become a history lesson. How are the actors, sets, costumes, orchestra? How well has it adapted to the new theatre?
