A revival of the historical musical 1776 is set to make a return to Broadway with a diverse LGBTQ+ and female-led cast. Back in 2019, Deadline revealed that Roundabout Theatre Company and American Repertory Theater would be bringing back the popular musical after a 20+ year absence. “This is an exciting opportunity for us at Roundabout, to bring this beloved musical back to the Broadway stage in partnership with our colleagues at the A.R.T,” said Todd Haims, Roundabout’s Artistic Director/CEO.

The show, which features music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards, follows one of America’s founding fathers, John Adams, as he tries to persuade his colleagues to sign the Declaration of Independence.

However unlike previous iterations of the show, the forthcoming revival is set to feature its most diverse cast yet – with actors who identify as female, transgender and non-binary as part of the leading ensemble.
