Dr Seuss’ famous Cat in the Hat has been brought to life in this new version of the much-loved children’s book on at the King’s Theatre this week.
Seussical is a bundle of feelgood fun that also incorporates some important and relatable themes, all set to a terrific score with a dazzling backdrop – Marc Pickering’s performance steals the show.
