June 10-11-12 and June 17-18-19 Center Stage Production of “1776” is the story of future president John Adams- generally loathed by other congressional member- who will goad and join Richard Henry Lee and Benjamin Franklin to develop a resolution for independence from England’s tyranny. Furthermore, Thomas Jefferson is asked to draft a declaration from the shackles of England’s King George. Adams and his group not only have to fight the British, it would appear, but the Continental Congress, as well, in their pursuit of independence. “1776” delivers this show with pathos, humor, wit, determination, and passion, as well as the acting and musical talents of it performers.
