THE FROG BRIDE Set for Wharton Center, 3/30

David Gonzalez - mastermind behind THE FROG BRIDE, as developed from the classic Russian tale and poems by Robert Bly - has always said, "When a frog talks, listen." This charming and delightfully comedic performance follows this idea and chronicles the journey of a Prince destined to marry a frog, touching on the ultimately human emotions of acceptance and understanding. THE FROG BRIDE makes its debut at Wharton Center on Sunday, March 30th, 2014. Tickets are $9, plus applicable fees, and are available online at whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.

David Gonzalez, hailed by Deepak Chopra as a man "who speaks with courageous humanity and brilliant creativity," pulls the production into a contemporary setting with his inventive updates and creative, technological spins. With his incorporation of composer Prokofiev's "Five Melodies for Violin and Piano," Gonzalez comes to create a punk-jazz score that transports the audience to an upbeat yet emotional setting. The kingdom of the THE FROG BRIDE is brought to sparkling life by projections and lights, using moving-images by painter and Guggenheim Museum staple, Wassily Kandinsky, to create a lyrical sense of beauty. All of these incorporations produce a full and diverse world, populated by characters that are completely brought to life by Gonzalez himself.
