Dr. Seuss' stories are so imaginative and his texts so lyrical that it's not hard to imagine them being set to music and put on the stage. Seussical: The Musical manages to retain the original sense of wonder while adding listener-friendly pop arrangements to satisfy your Broadway desires. All your favourite characters, from the Cat in the Hat to Horton the Elephant, come out to play and entertain you. It goes without saying that kids are going to love this soundtrack - the best part is that adults will get just as much pleasure out of it.

Editorial Notes

Music and lyrics by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Aherns, with additional lyrics by Dr. Seuss.
Principal cast includes: David Shiner (The Cat in the Hat); Kevin Chamberlin (Horton the Elephant); Janine LaManna (Gertrude McFuzz); Michele Pawk (Mayzie La Bird).
Recorded at Sony Music Studios, New York, New York. Includes liner notes by Lynn Ahrens & Stephen Flaherty.
SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
The fact that Monty Python alumnus Eric Idle takes partial conceptual credit for SEUSSICAL should tip you off to the fact that the ample comic potential of a Dr. Seuss musical is fully exploited here. Many of the characters from Dr. Seuss's classic books are given the sonic spotlight in SEUSSICAL.
Horton the elephant, the Cat In The Hat, and the Whos from the famed Grinch tale are all represented in song. All the strange creatures from the Seuss kingdom are given a full-fledged Broadway treatment here. Fans of big-production Broadway musicals with all the stops pulled out should enjoy SEUSSICAL, regardless of their familiarity with the source material.
