Event

The Frogs, In Concert
APPLAUSE! Musicals In Concert presents
The Frogs, In Concert

Music and Lyrics Stephen Sondheim
Freely Adapted by Burt Shevelove & Nathan Lane
A Comedy written in 405 B.C. by Aristophanes

THE FROGS, based on a comedy written in 405 B.C. by Aristophanes, features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

This boisterously hilarious yet poignant musical follows Dionysos, Greek god of wine and drama, and his slave Xanthias on a journey to Hades to collect renowned critic and playwright George Bernard Shaw so that he may enlighten the easily misled and coerced masses of Earth. Then, Shakespeare shows up and starts declaiming his greatest hits; before long he engages in a battle of words with Mr. Shaw. Who will win the honor of becoming reincarnated: The Bard or Bernard?

THE FROGS stays true to its heritage, mixing Aristophanic pratfall satire with a Sondheim score that swings from witty to pretty to rambunctious, but it also mirrors the Greek original for the serious issue of the role of the arts in a world beset by war and folly.
