It's a great debate with John Adams, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, Ben Franklin and the likes of many more statesmen in regard to the future of their new great nation. It's not the "stuffy" version that you read about in school. The facts are the same but the delivery is quite appealing and "musical."

 

After our backstage tour and prior to the show we will enjoy a delicious dinners at the Culver Pavillion next to the Muny stage. We will have this leisure dinner, then we will move on to  our seats for the show.

 

This will be a lovely night of food, entertainment, friends and new beginnings.
