The 1776 was the year in which musical theater marked its astonishing chapters in the history of America. Though, American independence couldn’t produce any legends in this specific area. Yet it was founded by ordinary men with the aim of showing their antagonism against the Continental Congress. However, Benjamin Franklin (Andrew Boyer) a man with a habit of over sleeping, Thomas Jefferson (Brandon Dalquist) a man who couldn’t be able to contemplate and John Adams (John Hickok) a man with the nature of over consciousness had no role played no role compared to others in the freedom struggle.
Although, no one can deny the fact that, music leaves a deep impact over the mind because it is so beautiful and magical. The whole world is witnessed about the brawniness of Frank Galati’s revivalism play -of 2 hours and 45 minutes- leaving great impacts on the patriotic musical production, resulting in physical existence of American Conservatory Theater on 6th of October at San Francisco.
Moreover, the real victory of Sherman Edwards and Peter Stone is to provide the platform of rousing musical theater that emphasizes strongly on the value of humanity that was forgotten during those days. They produce a number of dramas with the object of stratagem leading up the performance of Declaration of sovereignty through singing.
Undeniably, it plays a very crucial role in reshaping the nation which is free from any lust, smugness and the gratification of the so-called performance of the Congress for so long. The Philadelphia delegation is very inquisitive to grip to the British Empire, though, its representative who actually belong to Rhode Island (Dan Hiatt) is shattered by 10 a.m forcefully. In spite of that, the delegation who is originally from New York according to the (albeit courteously) refrains from their voting sacrament deliberately.
