The Founding Fathers are all played by women or trans/nonbinary performers in this revival of Sherman Edwards and Peter Stone's well-loved 1969 American-history musical about the tense preamble to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Directed by Jeffrey L. Page and Diane Paulus, the production has had a test run this summer at Paulus's American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts; the cast of that production—which has not yet been confirmed for Broadway—includes Crystal Lucas-Perry as John Adams, Elizabeth A. Davis as Thomas Jefferson, Allyson Kaye Daniel as Abigail Adams and Patrena Murray as Benjamin Franklin.
