Frogs

November 4 - 19, 2011
Fourth Street Theatre

A Greek comedy by Aristphanes
Directed by Aaron Rossini

Now stir up your voices, and let’s hear the song. May our revels begin and go on all night long.

A rowdy, bawdy romp through the underworld, Frogs is a celebration of humor and a poignant examination of the purpose of art. Inventing what would become the finest traditions of modern comedy, Aristophanes brings to life characters that belong in the same breath as the Three Stooges, Mel Brooks and Looney Tunes. A night of original music, jokes and capable storytelling, Frogs flexes FLT’s theatrical muscles in a comedy event 2,500 years in the making.

Runtime: 100 minutes (no intermission)

— Blog Critics
No ironic commentary or radical interpretation here—just a straightforward, enthusiastic presentation of an ancient Greek entertainment. Under Aaron Rossini’s direction, this fresh-faced approach is ultimately winning.
