If "Hamilton"'s mix of hummable tunes and fascinating history has left you itching to learn more about our nation's founding, then this Tony-winning Revolutionary musical drama just might be the ticket. "1776" takes you behind the scenes of the historic signing of the Declaration of Independence, as John Adams tried to persuade his fellow forefathers to vote for freedom from British rule. Also making appearances are colonial superstars like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock and Abigail Adams, along with a variety of crabby drunks, befuddled secretaries and assorted sycophants who also populate the proceedings. Pairing a funny, insightful story with a striking score, "1776" is a triumphant celebration of the American spirit that'll stir romance, comedy and conflict into a musical melting pot at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts.

This warmhearted, humorous play that won Alfred Uhry the 1988 Pulitzer Prize looks at the unexpected friendship between a fiercely independent Southern white woman and her African-American chauffeur. It's 1948, and after Daisy, an elderly Jewish widow who lives in Atlanta, has an auto accident, her son hires Hoke Colburn, a black man, to be her driver. Initially resistant, Miss Daisy gradually starts to accept Hoke, and an unlikely friendship begins to grow between the two over the next few decades. Ultimately a sweet tale of the transformative power of true friendship, the play also touches on the racism and prejudice that permeated the South against a backdrop of changing world events. Four-time Emmy-winner Michael Learned ("The Waltons") and Lance Nichols (HBO’s "Treme") star in this Laguna Playhouse production of one of America's most treasured stories of compassion, acceptance and mutual respect.
