JR. plunges audiences, striped-hat-first, into Dr. Seuss’s whimsical world.
The Cat in the Hat hosts the adventure, following Horton the Elephant as he ventures to such classic Seussian locales as Whoville and the Jungle of Nool while protecting the Whos and guarding an abandoned egg. Along his journey, the elephant meets an ensemble of other favorites, including the Grinch, Gertrude McFuzz, and lazy Mayzie.
The infectious score by composer Stephen Flaherty and librettist Lynn Ahrens—Tony winners for Ragtime—runs like jubilant Sneetches through the story.
