Play & Lyrics by SIDNEY MICHAELS
Music by MARK SANDRICH JR.
An unjustly forgotten gem from the richly prolific 1964-65 Broadway season, Ben Franklin in Paris chronicles Franklin’s efforts to get King Louis to recognize the United States as a sovereign nation – an important step toward independence from England.
Robert Preston starred on Broadway, and the score includes Half the Battle, I Invented Myself, We Sail the Seas, Look for Small Pleasures, and two songs by JERRY HERMAN, Too Charming and To Be Alone With You.
