This is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza by Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. They have brought to life Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination, Jojo.
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton’s challenge is twofold: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of negativity, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie. 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 depicted in this show suitable for all ages.
