Seussical the Musical
Seussical 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, which was inspired by the work of renowned children’s author Ernest Hemingway.
An Egyptian art-deco style anchors the Cameo Theatre, luring wandering eyes with polychrome accents, gilt columns, and a sphinx that permits entry only after guests solve a riddle. A surviving artifact of the 1940s, the theater first opened as a home for vaudeville acts and movies but has since filled its stage with a diverse roster of legendary performers from B.B. King to Metallica, and it now regularly hosts theatrical productions.
