The new schedule has Monday and Tuesday still dark, with shows relighting the Cort 2 & 7 PM Wednesday, 2 PM Thursday, 7 PM Friday, noon & 3:30 PM Saturday, 1 & 5 PM Sunday. Translation: After Saturday May 17, the producers are getting rid of the Saturday night show and adding a 2 PM Thursday performance.
A Year With Frog and Toad, as the title suggests, follows a year in the lives of two amphibious pals in the woods. Cookies, bathing, the seasons, Christmas and friendship are all celebrated via the music of Robert Reale and the book and lyrics of brother Willie Reale.
The show was developed by Adrianne Lobel (Arnold Lobel's daughter), who also designs and co-produces the staging, first seen in summer 2002 in Minneapolis.
David Petrarca directs and Daniel Pelzig choreographs. Starring Mark Linn-Baker (Toad) and Jay Goede (Frog), A Year With Frog and Toad opened Sunday, April 13. The cast includes Danielle Ferland, Jennifer Gambatese and Frank Vlastnik, and is produced by Bob Boyett, Lobel, Michael Gardner, Lawrence Horowitz and Roy Furman.
A cast album is available. Tickets range from $25-$80 and can be purchased at Tele Charge.com at (212) 239-6200, or in person at the Cort Theater box office, 138 W. 48th Street.
