America's Musical

You'll be on the edge of your seat as our nation's founding fathers fight for our freedom and draft the Declaration of Independence before your very eyes. Sparks fly as John Adams plots, the delegates vote, Thomas Jefferson writes, and George Washington waits, but it takes wily and wise Ben Franklin to save the day. It's a riveting musical filled with history, humor and, of course, romance.
