When Arnold Lobel's classic children's books were adapted for the Broadway stage, the resulting musical was a surprise crossover hit, snagging three Tony nods in 2003. Find out why when A Year With Frog and Toad comes to Area Stage at the Riviera Theater. It's an enchanting depiction of the enduring friendship between two dissimilar pals -- one happy-go-lucky and one not-so-much -- as they adventure through the seasons: sledding down snowy hills, planting spring flowers, splashing in summer swimming holes and piling autumn leaves. Along the way, they learn to accept one another, warts and all. Set to a clever, jazzy score, A Year With Frog and Toad is pure charm for the family.
