Adrianne Lobel and Frog and Toad at Barnes & Noble logo
Adrianne Lobel, the scenic designer and producer of the new Broadway musical A Year With Frog and Toad and the daughter of Arnold Lobel, on whose books the musical is based, will speak about the process of adapting the books for the stage and will sign copies of Frog and Toad Are Friends at Barnes & Noble on the Upper East Side of Manhattan on Saturday, May 3.

Lobel has also designed sets for the original Broadway productions of Passion, My One and Only, and Tintypes, as well as the revivals of On the Town and The Diary of Anne Frank. She is married to Mark Linn-Baker, who plays Toad in A Year With Frog and Toad.

In her review of the show for TheaterMania, Meredith Lee wrote: "With catchy songs, an energetic cast, and bright design elements, the musical has all the charm of the books on which it's based. Just as Lobel's stories have been happily shared by parents and their children, A Year With Frog and Toad is the type of musical that will appeal to theatergoers of all ages."

The May 3 event will begin at 11am at the Barnes & Noble located at 240 East 86th Street, between 2nd & 3rd avenues.
