The Two River Theater Co. brings a children’s favorite, ‘A Year with Frog and Toad,’ to life starting this week for a run through the holiday-season.

A family-oriented production with an engaging scene set on Christmas Eve, the musical comes to Red Bank for a month-long run that begins Saturday night, after previews this week, and offers a merry mix of matinee and evening performances well into the new year.

Red Bank oRBit has the scoop on the production, directed by Jackson Gay, above.

Also in oRBIt, an interview with author Beth Teitell on how far to go to avoid looking more and more reptilian as you age.

The longtime contributor to the Washington Post, Huffington Post and public radio’s Marketplace this fall published ‘Drinking Problems at the Fountain of Youth,’ her humorously framed yet exhaustively researched look at the subject of aging, and the lengths that we go to deny it. Teitell will speak and sign books at David Burke Fromagerie in Rumson tomorrow night.
