"Absorbing, funny and suspenseful, it is, in the great tradition of storytelling, enchanting."—New York Times

When a King sends his three sons to find brides, two return with fair ladies. The third returns with...a FROG?! In this hip new adaptation of a classic Russian folktale, witty and expressive storyteller David Gonzalez performs every role against a vivid video backdrop inspired by the art of Vasily Kandinsky. Two live musicians (violinist Christian Howes and composer/keyboardist Daniel Kelly) interweave themes from Sergei Prokofiev with an original jazz-funk score. Filled with comic sparkle, this coming-of-age story engages the imaginations and opens the hearts of all ages.
