A.R.T.'s ‘1776’ musical reimagines Founding Fathers with diverse cast
United States history is getting a long overdue rewrite in “1776,” running at the American Repertory Theater through July 24. The humorous musical about the Founding Fathers, written originally in the 1960s, has been reimagined with a cast of diverse female, non-binary and transgender actors, the people excluded most from history.
