review(ish): 1776

I want to say something about this musical that's thoughtful and thought-provoking and worth reading, but I can't seem to manage it. I can say that this is the only musical that I walk away from feeling almost too full of---I don't know what. Some blend of gratitude and wonder and resolve. Gratitude for this great (despite her many shortcomings and downright failures) nation I'm a part of, wonder that she even happened, and an almost desperate resolve not to take her existence for granted.

I meant to watch it on July 4th, but everyone else wanted to watch Burn Notice, so we did that instead.
