A review on the Clinton Area Showboats production of Seussical.
"Set designer Steven P. House - employing a gorgeous color palette of mostly blues and oranges - and lighting designer James K. Davis worked together to create Seuss-ian sorts of tribal cutout designs in PVC pipe, with light shining through to illuminate the patterns. (The pair must have also collaborated on the backdrop given the way lighting changes completely alter its coloring, as if in a sky that's constantly shifting hues.)"
"If I wasn't already sold on the performance about halfway through its first act, the production crew would've had me all in during the "It's Possible" scene, in which Joseph Brune's young Whovian Jojo is inspired by Morton Garringer's Cat in the Hat to explore the possibilities of imagination. (Brune alternates Showboat performances with Lilly Leding.) During this sequence, the cast stands around the balcony dangling sea creatures from strings on poles, with the underwater animals lighting up under a black light so they're almost the only things visible beyond the glowing backdrop, Jojo, and the Cat. I got chills experiencing this bit of theatrical magic, which captured me hook, line, and sinker."
