Dr. Seuss fans, young and old, lend an ear
A musical is coming, of which you’d want to hear.
It’s “Seussical,” a musical based on the tales
That your kids are constantly demanding with wails.
The busy Broadway production may have bombed
But, rest assure, this version has certainly calmed.
You’ll be laughing and clapping all the way through.
It’s clever, it’s fun, it’s entertaining — who knew?
At Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts
The Cat and the Hat will win your hearts
As he narrates a tale with humor and grace
That will surely bring a smile to your face.
There’s Horton, foremost, but many more, too,
From JoJo to Yertle to the lowliest Who.
They’ll sing and dance to your delight
As your little ones’ imaginations take flight.
So mark your calendars — this Sunday draws near
The day when Seuss’s books become real.
You won’t want to miss it, not a single second
Because all manners of silliness most certainly beckon!
“Seussical” at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts [2900 Campus Rd. and Hillel Place in Flatbush, (718) 951-4500], Jan. 30 at 2 pm. Tickets $7. For info, visit www.brooklyncenter.com.
