Audible Editor Reviews

American playwright Mark St. Germain’s off-Broadway hit Camping with Henry and Tom is a rollicking narrative inspired by real events. Industrialist Henry Ford and inventor Thomas Edison took annual camping trips together, accompanied by family, friends, and a host of help. In 1921, they invited President Warren G. Harding along. St. Germain devises a zany adventure laced with sparkling conversation and witty repartee. The charismatic Alan Alda, who plays Henry Ford with his usual verve, inspires the cast to deliver magnificent performances.
