Review from INT

It was more than I expected! I took my 3-year old daughter nervously, as the show is 2 hours long, beginning at 7:30p, and thus running into her bed time, but the entire time she was enthralled! The singing is excellent, the state and performers...continued

Seussical unites many of the beloved Doctor’s best-known characters (and some entirely new ones) in a colorful celebration of the powers of imagination and the rewards of daring to dream. Everyone’s favorite hat-wearing cat is our mischievous master of ceremonies, helping weave together the adventures of two original thinkers upon whose misunderstood and resented creativity much depends. Horton the gentle elephant and Jojo, youngest inhabitant of the tiniest planet in the universe — Who — must endure unpopularity and ridicule, yet their ultimate triumphs hinge on staying true to what they believe. The strength of Seuss’s message, the fun of his wordplay, and the delightful collision of a myriad of musical styles — from Latin to pop, swing to gospel, and R & B to funk — make for a rollicking romp with a subtext of substance.

Seussical features Sirena Abalian,Andrew Barbato, Elizabeth Berg, Jessica Bodner, Tess Brenner, Peter Carey*, Kerrin Elizabeth Clark, Santio Cupon, Nicholas Davis, Jennifer Beth Glick*, De’Lon Grant, Kamau Hashim, Naree Ketudat, Mark Linehan, Christie Millar, Isabelle Miller, Christina Monnen, Alex Nader, Emma Nardi, Gary Ng*, Ellen Peterson, Gamalia Pharms*, Claire Philippe, Alexandra Pimentel, Emily Pinto, Ilyse Robbins*, Brian Robinson*, Lexi Ryan, Jenna Scott, Marlon Smith-Jones, Madeleine Snow, Jane Staab*, Jeremy Sutherland, and Angela Williams*
