Seussical, The Musical – January 2007

Book by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, Co-Conceived by Eric Idle, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Music by Stephen Flaherty

Directed by Kimberley Shaw

With music by Stephen Flaherty and lyrics by Lynn Aherns (Ragtime) the songs are wonderful, and with co-conceiver Eric Idle, it is more than a little off-beat (excuse the pun!). This show is “Dr Seuss for grownups”, but if the kids insist on coming along they’ll have a great time as the show is suitable for all ages!

Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, Eve Ensler's Obie Award-winning masterpiece gives voice to women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who sees it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again.

Natural Causes, a black comedy, is the story of Vincent, who works for a company called Exodus as a professional "suicide merchant".
