From our #1776NRT co-directors, Austin Pendleton and Kelli Edwards:
Austin: "I hope the audience will come out of the theater marveling at how far - with all the difficulties we have entailed since those incredibly courageous men convened in Philadelphia in that long, hot summer of 1776 to imagine and to begin to craft America - how far America has come in its struggle for a much, much larger inclusiveness."
Kelli: "I think what this musical shows us, in light of what is happening today, is the tenuousness of what we have. The ideals on which the country was founded are in constant conflict with the compromises that we make, and that tension still exists today. I want our audience to see themselves in these "historical" characters."
