Music By Robert Reale. Book and Lyrics by Willie Reale. Based on the books by Arnold Lobel. Originally presented on Broadway by Bob Boyett, Adrianne Lobel, Michael Gardner, Lawrence Horowitz and Roy Furman. World Premier at The Childrenâ€™s Theatre Company Minneapolis, Minnesota. Arnold Lobelâ€™s treasured characters hop from page to stage in a story of friendship and adventure. A hit on Broadway, A Year with Frog and Toad was nominated for three Tony Awards â€“ including Best Musical. This whimsical show follows two great friends â€“ the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad â€“ through four funâ€“filled seasons. The jazzy, upbeat score bubbles with melody and wit, making it an inventive, exuberant and enchanting musical for the whole family.
