Josh Kornbluth's "Ben Frankln: Unplugged"
A performance of "Ben Franklin: Unplugged," Josh Kornbluth's comic monologue. One day, while shaving, Josh realized -- to his amazement -- that he looked like Ben Franklin. His struggle to create a one-man show based on this discovery put him on the trail of a historical mystery: Why did Franklin's son, William, turn against the Revolution? "Ben Franklin: Unplugged" is a comic meditation on what happens when parents, children, and politics combine.

All proceeds to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The show runs about an hour and 50 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission. Geared for adults, but some older children with long attention spans may dig it too.

"Ben Franklin: Unplugged works on a lot of levels. Primarily it's a detective story, as Kornbluth delves into the untold story of Franklin's break with his loyalist son. It's a revenge tale about Kornbluth getting his own back from a university that wouldn't accept him as a student. It's a show biz saga. Above all it's a poignant and penetrating father-son saga that completes a trilogy that deserves to stand with the best of the Jewish father-son sagas in our theatre." - Washington Post
