Description

“Seussical,” will be produced by Arts Off Broadway, in the company of over 75 performers, with a fresh and fun look at the magical work of Dr. Seuss. The musical was created for both children and adults to enjoy. The story includes 14 Dr. Seuss classics merging together in one hilarious tale. When chaos erupts in the Jungle of Nool, it will take the Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, and a gaggle of your favorite characters to bring harmony back to the world. Special effects and flying illusions will be provided by professionals from ZFX Flying Illusions.

“I can see that you’ve got quite a mind for your age!

Why, one Think and you dragged me right onto the stage!

Now, I’m here, there is no telling what may ensue

With a Cat such as me, and a Thinker like you!"

So says the mischievous Cat in the Hat at the onset of this fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once On This Island, and Ragtime) have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie and all of the Whos of Whoville!

These classic, colorful tales are seamlessly brought together by Jojo, a young boy and “thinker of strange and wonderful thinks”! As each story unfolds you will marvel at how relevant and profound Seuss’s subtle themes are; making this musical one that appeals to all ages.

The score emerges as a Seussian gumbo of musical styles, ranging from Latin to pop, swing to gospel, and R&B to funk! So let your toes tap, your fingers snap, and your imagination run wild.
