Benjamin Franklin Live

“Your Franklin is the best I have ever seen!”
–Gordon Wood, Pulitzer Prize author: The Americanization of Ben Franklin

 The SPARK Museum of Electrical Invention proudly presents “Ben Franklin LIVE,” an intimate visit with the Father of Electricity as portrayed by internationally acclaimed actor and Franklin scholar, Christopher Lowell, featuring ONLY one performance: Saturday, March 2 at 6:30 p.m.

“Everyone loves Benjamin Franklin, and everyone loves Lowell’s amazing portrayal of The Father of Electricity–he’s that good!” says John Jenkins, the Museum’s President  & CEO. “It makes sense that we invite the finest Ben Franklin interpreter to perform amidst one of the finest collections of early electrical devices in the world.”

 Lowell is a passionate educator whose performances have brought history to life and delighted audiences of all ages for over 40 years. This Museum event will include a lively interactive presentation highlighted with an electrical demonstration, featuring Master of Lightning, Ben Franklin, squaring-off against The Mighty MegaZapper, one of the largest lightning machines in the country!
