Franklin Stage Co Closes Season with Return of Julian Fleisher and Friends
Franklin Stage Company will present a return engagement of master singer and showman Julian Fleisher over the Labor Day weekend. The weekend, dubbed "Julian Fleisher and Friends" rounds out FSC's 2019 summer offerings with three evenings of intimate song and storytelling. "We close our 23rd season with an artist we're bringing back by popular demand!" said FSC co-artistic directors Patricia Buckley and Leslie Noble. "This show was the sold out hit of our season last year, and we're thrilled to have him back," continued Noble. "This year, he focuses on intimate evenings with musical friends."
Julian Fleisher, dubbed a "Manhattan nightclub supernova" by the LA Times, is a singer, bandleader, actor, and longtime associate of the Franklin Stage Company. He returns to Chapel Hall with an assist from, among others, guitar virtuoso and Phoenicia's own, Pete Smith.

From George Gershwin to Lady Gaga, Fleisher's motto is: if it swings it sings.
