Frog Kiss has book and lyrics by Charles Leipart and music by Eric Schorr.
Based on the novella "The Frog Prince, A Fairytale for Consenting Adults" by Stephen Mitchell, the show, according to press notes, is a "saucy 'n' swinging new musical featuring a scientific-minded princess who is determined to turn her frog into a prince to save her kingdom."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
