The beloved suburban amphibians leap to tuneful life as the irresistibly upbeat Frog lifts the spirits of his worrywart neighbor Toad. The director of the smash hit "Spamalot" and the summer kids' favorites "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "How I Became a Pirate" now brings you the only children's show ever nominated for the coveted Tony Award for Broadway's Best Musical!

The legendary stand-up comic, actor and writer imagined this hilarious meeting between a would-be scientist called Einstein and an irresistible but unknown painter named Picasso. It's 1904 in a Paris cafe called the "Lapin Agile" ("Nimble Rabbit"—you don't have to pronounce it to love it!). Wit and whimsy fuels their talk of creativity and inspiration with the bistro's unforgettable cast of regulars until a very different kind of genius mysteriously arrives from the future to "rock" their world!
