Overview

In Boston, Paul Revere etches out a humble living as a silversmith. Americans and British alike hail the exquisite artistry of his work. But when Paul's revolutionary friends, John Hancock and Samuel Adams pressure Revere to take a stand against British tyranny and join the Sons of Liberty, he worries that supporting the cause of revolution would mean losing his business and risking the safety of his family. Revere must make a choice: to do what is easy, or to do what is right. From the halls of British Parliament, to the port of Boston and the "Tea Party" protest, to the Boston Massacre and the dangerous thrill of Revere's now-legendary ride, this new musical makes American history accessible and exciting through a unique combination of music, drama and humor. The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere tells the inspirational, universal story of how ordinary people can make a difference.
