An unusually packed house for this inaugural in a series of staged readings from Musical Theater West. I enjoyed this a LOT more than their bloated 1776 a few months... continued

Description

This rarely-seen gem of a musical follows one of America’s Founding Fathers as he travels to France to secure the King’s support in the Colonies’ war against Britain.

This show (with two songs ghost-written by Jerry Herman) was Robert Preston’s first star vehicle following his triumph in The Music Man and is a charming period piece.

Staged readings are performed with script in hand using minimal staging and choreography. Limited props and costume pieces are used, allowing the imaginations of the audience to take over. Staged readings are the perfect way for audiences to enjoy a show from yesterday or be introduced to a new piece of musical theatre.
