Available now, the original Broadway cast recording of the Lincoln Center Theater production of The Frogs. As first adapted by Stephen Sondheim and Burt Shevelove from Aristophanes' ancient comedy, The Frogs received its world premiere at the Yale University swimming pool in 1974 as a one-act musical. Now Sondheim and librettist Nathan Lane (who also heads the cast of twenty-eight actors, singers and dancers) have shaped it into a full-length Broadway production, complete with six new Sondheim songs (plus a host of new lyrics to the old ones). This original Broadway cast recording of The Frogs boasts nineteen tracks, plus a 48-page full-color booklet.
