FEATURING DAVID GONZALEZ, STORYTELLER
In this 2006 Drama Desk Award nominee, boy marries frog; boy loses frog; boy finds true love – and a human bride. When a King sends his three sons to find their brides, two return with fair ladies. The last returns with... A FROG?! The Frog Bride is a hip adaptation of the classic Russian tale told by consummate storyteller David Gonzalez. Musicians weave one of Prokofiev’s classics with an original jazz-funk score, as David performs every role against a backdrop of video projections and images by Wassily Kandinsky. Filled with comic sparkle, this is a “ribbiting” coming-of-age story. “Absorbing, funny and suspenseful, it is, in the great tradition of storytelling, enchanting.” –The New York Times
