“Mr. Gonzalez has the gift of creating magical worlds and drawing his audience into them. A palpable delight.” - The New York Times

When a King sends his three sons to find their brides, two return with fair ladies. The last returns with... A FROG?! The Frog Bride with David Gonzalez is a hip adaptation of a classic Russian tale told by consummate storyteller David Gonzalez. Two outstanding musicians weave one of Prokofiev's classics with an original jazz-funk score, as David performs every role against a backdrop of stunning live video projection and moving images by painter Wassily Kandinsky. Filled with comic sparkle, The Frog Bride with David Gonzalez is a "ribbiting" coming-of-age story.
