The year is 1773. The place is Boston Mass. Sam Adams owns a friendly tavern called Cheers, frequented by our founding fathers. While Sam does his best to impress Betsy Ross, John Adams, John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin and Paul Revere band together to plot the overturn of British tyranny and their tea tax, all under the ever-watchful eye of the governor of Massachusetts. Cheers: 1773 is a sitcom-style romp through one of the nations most formative times in history. The Boston Tea Party takes center stage as the beloved characters of Cheers are re-imagined as luminaries of revolutionary America.
