So many elements of this lively production are terrific, including committed performances; inventive choreography by Stephanie Westbrook performed with energy, expressiveness and enthusiasm by the company; strong production values including the best conceived temporary stage ever in this makeshift venue, and charming moments of interpretation including the undersea sequence, the portrayal of the kids as scouts and Horton’s trial sequence.
Overall, though, this brightly performed Seussical feels a bit de-Seussed.
