‘1776’ Broadway Musical coming to the Alhambra in JAX

It's the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence... if only our founding fathers can agree to do it!  1776”, presented by Fleet Landing, follows John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they attempt to convince the members of the Second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence.

This 1776 will open at Jacksonville’s iconic Alhambra Theatre & Dining (winner of “Best Dinner Theatre” for the 5th straight year) on October 17.  1776” puts a human face on the pages of history as the audiance sees the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures.  These men are determined to do the right thing for a fledgling nation.

Starring in the lead as John Adams is
Kevin Anderson.  
Kevin has starred in over 30 film and television productions and over 30 stage productions worldwide from Steppenwolf (35-year ensemble member) to Broadway, Off-Broadway, Dublin, and London’s West End.  He has been nominated for a Tony Award, (Death of A Salesman), Outer Critics Circle Award (Come Back Little Sheba), Golden Globe, Viewers for Quality Television, TV Critics Association Awards (Nothing Sacred), and has won Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards (Death of A Salesman), and Theatre World and Jefferson Awards (Orphans).  Some of his most memorable performances include: Orphans (with Albert Finney), Sleeping with the Enemy (with Julia Roberts) Sunset Boulevard (with Patti Lupone), RFK in Hoffa (with Jack Nicholson), and Biff in Death of a Salesman.  He is perhaps best known for his performance as Father Ray in ABC’s Nothing Sacred.
