Seussical

This lively and tuneful mash-up of stories and characters from the imagination of Dr. Seuss had a rocky Broadway debut, but has since become one of the most popular titles in the whole canon. Filled with whimsy, humor, and childlike wonder, Seussical provides a marvelous array of characters for performers to embody.
