The Cat in the Hat, Horton and more of Dr. Seuss' beloved characters are heading to London! Seussical the Musical, based on the books of the famed children's author, will receive its West End premiere at Arts Theatre this holiday season. No casting has been announced.
Directed by Phillip Rowntree, this new Theatre for Young Audiences version of the show will offer special family-friendly daytime performances December 4 through January 6, with an opening night set for December 6.
Created by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty and Monty Python's Eric Idle, Seussical opened at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre on November 20, 2000. A 90-minute revival played off-Broadway in the summer of 2007. During its short time in New York, Seussical featured several stars in the flashy role of The Cat in the Hat including Rosie O’Donnell, Cathy Rigby and Aaron Carter.
The London premiere will feature choreography by Maddy Mutch, musical direction by Joe Morrow, set and costume design by Richard Evans and lighting design by Alexander Ridgers.
