DESCRIPTION

When a King sends his three sons to find their brides, two return with fair ladies. The last returns with… A FROG?! Set against a stunning backdrop of video and images by painter Wassily Kandinsky, this virtual presentation offers a hip adaptation of the classic Russian tale. Consummate storyteller David Gonzalez plays every role, while his musician partners weave original jazz and Sergei Prokofiev’s music throughout the words and visions. Filled with comic sparkle, the story traces the discoveries of a young princess as she navigates the wishes of fathers, princes, frogs, and witches and learns to stand up for herself.
