Playhouse on the Square, TN

Good old Dr. Seuss thrives in technicolor

Seussical unfolds in verse to the familiar Seussian gallop
“Not since the love-rock musical Hair has Playhouse on the Square staged a more psychedelic production than the heart-tugging Seussical."

“…But in terms of flashbacks, this exuberant, technicolored feast for the eyes and soul is just what a child of the '50s – or '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s – needs to realize what a long, strange trip it's been from innocence to – well, what I have now.”

“There are so many well-crafted performances in this show that you might suppose Playhouse got hold of the B-way cast…”

”Director Gary John La Rosa (Fiddler on the Roof) has elevated scenes fit for children's theater to thoughtful, intense revelations that could teach adults a thing or two about loyalty, love, respect, etc. He also keeps the show fast-paced and entertaining.”

“Like your favorite Dr. Seuss book, the musical gets inside your head and reminds you why, generations from now, people will still be going back for more ‘Green Eggs and Ham.’“
