An Early Fourth of July Celebration with 1776 at The MUNY

Stage Directions

This Fourth of July week, The MUNY revisited 1776 with their first production of the show in 20 years, on a beautiful brand new stage, an entirely new structure, with all new lighting. The MUNY enters its second century this season. This montage of their production shows off some of the automation, the lighting, and all the talent of the creative teams and artists of The MUNY. Fifty years since its Broadway opening, 1776 is not merely a patriotic look back but rather timely reminders to us that America's history of democratic ideals and freedoms were hard fought for to establish a nation that holds civil debate and the exchange of ideas essential to its core principles and existence.
