1776 - New Rep, Boston
Posted by: crewbway 03:57 pm EST 12/31/18

Caught the last performance of 1776 yesterday at the New Rep in Watertown. As the reviewer on ATC said, it was color- and gender-blind casting. First, kudos to the actor who stepped in to play Thomas Jefferson; I believe he just covered the role yesterday.
The sound design was excellent and I was able to catch all of the dialogue, especially during the 45 minutes of just book. As my hearing goes off a bit when my allergies are bad, I appreciate being able to catch everything being said.
Still thinking about the casting choices, but I guess that can be a good thing. Martha Jefferson being played by a man - what would Betty Buckley say!
