It's got to be John Adams! How can you not like a character who sings about Congress using "piddle and twiddle"? And nothing's improved since then!

Thomas Paine for his influential writings: Common Sense and The American Crisis.

Not having seen the play before (and eager to see it now! Two friends from our church are in the cast!), I would have to say Thomas Jefferson, from listening to the Thomas Jefferson Hour on NPR. He was a very wise, insightful, literate and complex person. I'd like to see him in action with other amazing men and women from that crucial time in our history!

Abigail Adams for her behind-the-scenes support, wisdom and love, and for raising their children essentially as a single parent for extended periods of time.

Thomas Jefferson is the best character - he has so much on his mind, and ends up getting roped into writing the constitution, and does it so well - once he gets focused.

Abigail Adams, for she is the rock upon which the troubled waters of John's life breaks.

These are great! Please keep 'em coming. By the way, be sure to check back here Friday at 2:00 p.m. to see who wins because we don't have contact info for most of you.

Definitely John Adams, Saw this play in New York in the 70's fell in love with this character who had such integrity, intelligence and humor.

Favorite 1776 character for tickets: The Costumes. "Boxers, briefs, or pantaloons"-Pam from the Office.

It has to be John Adams for being a creative thinker. He had NEW ideas and wasn't afraid to let them be known.

Kimberly said...

My family has not seen 1776 but we like Benjamin Franklin, a true renaissance man.

John Adams! John is the man! David McCullough wrote such a great bio of him, and included info abt the invaluable part Abigail played. Connie

Abigail Adams, at least in the mini series, she was the smartest, strongest and wisest. Too bad she was before her time and would not have been accepted as a candidate in 1776 since she was a female.

Benjamin Franklin. His antics are marvelous and who can't love his choice of the turkey for our national bird.

Martha Jefferson because she loved because "He played the violin."

Davis family said...

Abigail Adams is our favorite character. She inspired not one, but two of our presidents. Her strength and courage as she managed the farm and cared for the children during John's long stays in Philidelphia is an inspiration today. Her thirst for knowledge and commitment to public service are also cause for our admiration.
