“Shaw” – The Frogs

Music and Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim

Illustrious playwright George Bernard Shaw died on this day in 1950, but he appears as a character (his dead self) in this musical which demonstrates how the arts improve our lives.  Dionysus meets Shaw at a banquet in the underworld Hades where the former sings this intricately-rhymed ode to the latter.
