7/9-25: "1776" at Carpenter Performing Arts Center

Tomorrow I begin rehearsals for 1776, the Tony Award-winning musical which dramatizes the events leading to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. A crackling masterwork filled with humor, romance and history that the NY Post called, "brilliant and remarkably moving."
