A musical that captivates the spirit, action, and causes of the United States founders as they formulated the Constitution. Presented in story form, brimming with song, dance, drama, and humor, “A More Perfect Union” personalizes the workings of history by following four representative characters who bring us to the center of many key episodes.
The story of begins in Boston, 1773 and ends at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, 1787. The musical covers the critical and tempestuous time in our nation’s history in which revolution, war, and a failed attempt at self-governing finally led to the writing of the U.S. Constitution and the birth of our country as we know it today.
