A Year With Frog and Toad The Short List (Theater) Recommended Image Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through Oct. 29 2017

What a delight to spend four seasons with the inseparable Frog and Toad and their riverside pals. As banjo, barrelhouse keyboard, light taps on the cajón, and fingerstyle guitar all weave together softly in the background (the music is by Robert Reale, book and lyrics by Willie Reale), as cookies bake in the oven and tea brews on the hob, as a snail (Shawn Pfautsch) delivers mail, the upbeat Frog (Matthew C. Yee) and his somber pal Toad (the wonderful Andy Nagraj) go skipping sweetly through daring outdoor adventures, from sledding to swimming to raking leaves, building true friendship along the way. A revival of Chicago Children’s Theatre’s first-ever production, which debuted at the Goodman in 2006, this is a thoroughly lovable beginning to the company’s first season at its new permanent space. —Max Maller
