Stage Rights Musical of the Week: Money Talks


From the creative team behind the Off-Broadway smash hit, Desperate Measures!

Money Talks follows Ben Franklin—the man on the hundred-dollar bill—as he's passed from person to person across America. Ben is none too pleased by what he sees in our country today, and he's bound and determined to call out our failings. Fortunately, he has a lifetime of famous sayings to draw upon.

Inspired by the writings of Ben Franklin, the play La Ronde, and the big mess America is in today, Money Talks runs the gamut from dramedy to satire to romance to farce, yet somehow always manages to be on the money.

Money Talks takes a humorous look at American society while celebrating one of its great geniuses. And that persnickety, sharp-witted genius has kept his mouth shut long enough!
