Description: Conceived by Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty and Eric Idle Book by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens Music by Stephen Flaherty "After all those years being stuck on a page, Did you ever imagine youíd see me onstage? Now Iím here, there is no telling what may ensue! No, thereís no telling what! But Iíll give you a clue..." So says the mischievous Cat in the Hat at the onset of this fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Once On This Island, Ragtime) have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie and all of the Whos of Whoville! These classic, colorful tales are seamlessly brought together by Jojo, a young ìthinker of strange and wonderful thinksî! As each story unfolds you will marvel at how relevant and profound Seussís 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, for "If you open your mind, Oh, the thinks you will find Lining up to get loose! Oh, the thinks you can think! Oh, the thinks you can think When you think about Seuss!!"
