Why See Money Talks?
The man on the $100 has plenty more to say
If your face was on the front of a hundred-dollar bill, how would you feel about how you were spent? This is the premise behind new musical comedy Money Talks, which opens Off-Broadway this July! Written and composed by Peter Kellogg, this new production will be directed by Michael Chase Gosselin, who also provides the high-octane choreography. The Music Man star Ralph Byers will star as the eponymous Benjamin Franklin, the very man decorating the front of the coveted bill, as he is passed along to different people, with consequences along the way.
A tongue-in-cheek warning about America's obsession with wealth, Ben Franklin is just about done being passed around some of the most corrupt and unsavoury characters in society. Known for his elegant catchphrases, he decides to take a stand and speak up - as he is passed from a hedge-fund manager to a stripper, who then passes it to a judge, who passes it on to his nun mistress! Over the course of ninety minutes, Franklin goes on a whirlwind journey - and he has plenty to make a song and dance about!
