Publisher's Summary

Ben Franklin's wisdom is just as potent now as it was more than 200 years ago. Fredd Wayne's brilliant performance reveals this genius with a sense of proportion that carefully balances excerpts from Franklin's public writings and his private correspondence. The first act is devoted to Franklin's life in Philadelphia, where we meet the politically savvy Ben, the inventor Ben, the entertaining Ben, the womanizing Ben, the father Ben. The second act in Paris shows Ben to be a complex man of vast intelligence, humor, and some brooding regrets. In this exclusive production, Ben Franklin speaks to us all.
