About the Movie
You'll be seeing stars and stripes as the most fascinating leaders in American history come to life in 1776, a musical about the birth of a nation! With the Boston Harbor still stained from over-taxed British tea, a revolution is brewing in the colonies! And now England has thousands of troops headed for America's shores to squelch her subjects' freedom-loving spirit! It's up to John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson to convince a stubborn congress of British colonists to unite as American patriots and turn the inevitable war with England into a Declaration of Independence!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: With "1776," political struggles that took place nearly two-and-a-half centuries ago feel as fresh and immediate as the political struggles of today.
Worth Your Money and Time
Outstanding! This movie captivates audiences of all ages, because of its humor and lovable joyfulness. It tells history through catchy songs, sad and hilarious scenes, and a wonderful and brilliant ending. I have already seen it twice and it is so spectatcular and enjoyable that I want to buy it and keep it forever.5 STARS!!!!!!<3
One of my faves
This is actually one of my favorite movies. Also one of my favorite musicals. The movie features almost the entire original Broadway cast, and while it's definitely a musical, it could very nearly be considered a play with music. There's really some meaty stuff here. Very funny, smart, and human.
Though I am only 11, this is one of my favorite musicals/movies ever. It is charming, and inspirational.
