SEUSSICAL Opens Today at the Franklin Theatre

Seussical opens today at the Franklin Theatre at 1:00pm and 6:00pm!

Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza and fun for the whole family!

Tony winners 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, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and a little boy with a big imagination--Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge--not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
