They knew they would make history, but not what history would make of them. Fed up with living under the tyranny of British rule, John Adams attempts to persuade his fellow members of the Continental Congress to vote in favor of American Independence and sign the Declaration. But how much is he willing to compromise in the pursuit of freedom? And who does that freedom belong to?
In this new production of the Tony Award-winning musical, this pivotal moment in American history is reexamined with a cast that reflects multiple representations of race, gender, and ethnicity.
