Smart Bets: FROGZ

You probably have to kiss a lot of princes to find a frog like this. FROGZ, really. The production of Portland, Ore.'s Imago Theatre combines dance, mime and acrobatics with masks, costumes and an original music score for "a carnival of the absurd, presenting universal themes in works that tantalize the senses and intellect." According to a press release, "Animals take on human characteristics and inanimate objects like Slinkys engage in silly humanistic movements. Penguins play musical chairs, larger-than-life alligators taunt the audience, orbs run wild, and huge frogs leap about in a madcap revue of illusion, comedy and fun." Performances take place at Diana Wortham Theatre on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 13 and 14, at 8 p.m. $35/$30/$15/$10. dwtheatre.com. Photo courtesy of Imago Theatre
