Acclaimed storyteller, actor, writer and performer David Gonzalez brings his beloved production of The Frog Bride -- which the New York Times has called "enchanting" -- to the stage at Richardson's Eisemann Center for Performing Arts. A show for children and the child in us all, Gonzalez's Bride is a hip adaptation of the classic Russian tale. Accompanied by two musicians and their original, Prokofiev-infused jazz-funk score, Gonzalez relates the story of three princes who, at their father's urging, go out into the world to find and bring back their brides. Two of the brothers return with fair ladies, but the third comes home with a frog! Live video projection and moving images by painter Wassily Kandinsky provide the dynamic backdrop for this unique, engaging and thoroughly entertaining storytelling experience.
The five-time Tony-winning show that The New York Times called "the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades," Peter and the Starcatcher is the swashbuckling prequel to Peter Pan. Inventive stagecraft and an imaginative story come together to reveal the origins of "the boy who wouldn't grow up" in this madcap music-filled adventure. The play is an action-packed journey through Neverland that brings pirates, mermaids, orphans and secret agents of the Queen together on the high seas. Based on the bestselling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, and written by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys), this production of Peter and the Starcatcher at ONSTAGE in Bedford weaves an enchanting coming-of-age tale that's bound to appeal to your entire crew.
