“New Rep gives us a fun production that is more timely than it is educational. This musical might be based on historical facts but this production brings new momentum to current events.”

Talkin’ Broadway on ‘1776’

” Steven Martin provides the show’s richest singing in the somber “Momma, Look Sharp,” as a courier (from Watertown, no less) memorializing two friends who died in battle.”

Metro West on ‘1776’

“Clearly chosen for the fine caliber of their voices, and a remarkable chiming of the ensemble in the full cast numbers, the 23 actors more than do justice to Sherman’s score.”

The Boston Globe on ‘1776’

“Carolyn Saxon endows Abigail Adams with a playfully luminous personality that glows throughout her lovely duets with Evett (“Till Then’’ and “Yours, Yours, Yours’’).”
