[Editor’s Note: A 2006 edition commemorates Ben Franklin’s 300th birthday.]--In the years before the American Revolution, Benjamin Franklin--America's most famous states-man--lived in a rooming house on London's Craven Street. Yuri Rasovsky's clever radio play portrays this period in Franklin's life, highlighting the complexities and personal contradictions of the brilliant writer, philosopher and constitutional signatory. George Grizzard is believable as Franklin, revealing sides of the man we rarely find in history books. The late Elizabeth Montgomery has a distinctive--and bewitching--role as narrator and Franklin's conscience. CRAVEN STREET is a moving, informative and beautifully produced radio play festooned with music and sounds of the time, and starring a full cast that includes Martin Sheen, David Warner, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., and Nigel Hawthorne.
