The history of theater goes all the way back to the 1970s, when audiences were eager to see "living movies." See how far these unfilmed talkabouts have come in only 40 years with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a ticket to Seussical the Musical (up to a $21 value) presented by Bridgeport Theatre Company at Playhouse on the Green, located on State Street in Bridgeport. The production runs April 29 through May 15 with shows on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 3 p.m., and a matinee on Saturday, May 14 at 2 p.m.
In Seussical the Musical, the nonprofit Bridgeport Theatre Company presents an amalgamation of iconic children's-book characters in an irreverent musical fueled by youthful thrill and adult nostalgia. The Cat dons his storyteller Hat to narrate the exploits of Horton the Elephant, the Whos, and a multifarious ensemble as they croon through the travails of love, commitment, prejudice, and name pronunciation. The theater company's diverse coalition of local thespians guides families through lush locales from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus and Whoville. Theatergoers can avail their buggies of free parking behind Playhouse on the Green.
