Women Take On The Roles Of Founding Fathers In "1776"
When directors are casting a musical that's been staged before, they're often dependent on what it originally looked like.

Musical Theater Heritage opens a production of "1776" this weekend, boldly asserting that shows don't have to be held hostage to history.
"1776" runs through August 29th at the Off Center Theater in Crown Center.
