The Frogs uses the setting of ancient Greece to playfully explore two of the great challenges of human existence: confronting our fears and challenging the distractions that prevent us from achieving our goals.
Both funny and poignant, Stephen Sondheim’s musical comedy 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 masses of Earth. Along the way, Dionysos and Xanthias meet Herakles and Pluto, of course, but also Chekhov, Ibsen, Brecht, and a creepy chorus of frogs. When Shakespeare shows up and declaims his greatness the battle of wits begins in earnest.
