A Comedy written in 405 B.C. by Aristophanes
Freely adapted by Burt Shevelove
Even more freely adapted by Nathan Lane
With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Stephen Sondheim/Burt Shevelove's musical satire, inspired by Aristophanes, The Frogs , with new songs by the composer, revised book by co-star Nathan Lane, (who performs the role of Dionysos), directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman, in a co-presentation with Lincoln Center Theater.

In The Frogs, the Greek god Dionysos (to be played by Nathan Lane), troubled by the world's ills, embarks on a perilous and frog-infested journey to Hades with his slave Xanthias (played by Chris Kattan, of Saturday Night Live fame), to bring back an extraordinary writer who, by providing words of wit and wisdom, will help save mankind from self-destruction.
