In Honor of the 50th Anniversary of The Cat in the Hat; July 13 to 29, John Cranford Adams PlayhouseHofstra University, Hempstead, NY … In honor of the 50th anniversary of the publication of The Cat in the Hat, Hofstra University’s Hofstra Entertainment will present Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s Seussical the Musical at the John Cranford Adams Playhouse, July 13 to 29, 2007.
“Oh, the thinks you can think!” says the Cat in the Hat at the onset of this fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that brings to life all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie and all of the Whos of Whoville! As each story unfolds, you’ll marvel at how relevant and profound Seuss’ subtle themes are, making this a musical that appeals to all ages. The score emerges as a Seussian gumbo of musical styles, ranging from Latin to pop, swing to gospel, and R&B to funk! So let your toes tap, your fingers snap, and your imagination run wild!
