Peter Stone and Sherman Edwards, 1776, is a brilliant imagining of American history, a grand tale which manages to feel both intimate and epic at once, bringing humor and humanity to the account of twenty men, three months, and one incredible argument, in which the fate of nations is decided. The score features such famous tunes as the romantic. “He Plays the Violin,” the comedic “The Lees of Old Virginia,” and that plaintive memorial to young patriouts, “Momma, Look Sharp.”
