Dr. Seuss' The Lorax
The Old Globe Theatre presents a new musical adaptation of Dr. Seuss's classic children's book. It's a cautionary tale of a greedy businessman who disregards the warnings of the Lorax, defender of the trees. There's plenty of Seussian wordplay, and diverse music that largely tickles the senses and gets toes tapping. Sets and costumes are charming, both in the somber framework story and especially the vibrant world of the Lorax. The hard-working and talented cast members play a multitude of characters, with a few performing double-duty as puppeteers and musicians. While some aspects seem particularly suited to kids - bodily function gags and the near-frenetic pace - The Lorax is full of all-ages whimsey, stage magic, and, importantly, hope. Critic's Pick..
