HEY THERE BROADWAY FANS. The 90th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade which kicks off the holiday season is 12 days away and our TOP 20 BROADWAY AT THE MACY’S PARADE COUNTDOWN continues. We are playing some of our favorite Broadway performances from the NBC and CBS telecasts.
At #12, we are magically taken into the world of classic Dr. Seuss children’s book. This is of course the cult classic Seussical.
From the 2000 NBC telecast, Tony nominee Kevin Chamberlin and the whimsical cast bring the magic of DR. SEUSS into Harold Square for a performance of the showstopper BIGGEST BLAME FOOL.
SEUSSICAL played Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre in 2000 playing a total of 232 performances. The show featured a lot of celebrity replacements in the production including Rosie O’Donnell and Cathy Rigby Mccoy as The Cat In The Hat and pop singer Aaron Carter as Jojo. It was later revived Off Broadway in a 90 minute version from Theatreworks USA. SEUSSICAL continues to be performed in schools, on tour, regional, and community theatres everywhere.
Aren’t those Dr. Seuss characters so whimsical?
Seussical the Musical – many cast changes occurred during this show’s run: Rosie O’Donnell, Cathy Rigby, Aaron Carter… it still closed in a few months.
