Globe Review: Seussical

Wheelock Family Theatre's production of Seussical captures all the colorful chaos in a show that celebrates imagination, creativity, and integrity.
In between the beautiful ballads "Alone in the Universe" and "Solla Sollew," we follow Horton the elephant (a winning Kamau M. Hashim) and his efforts to protect his tiny Who friends, especially JoJo (the adorable Sirena Abalian, above), whose thinking leads him into trouble.
These two odd fellows epitomize Seuss's respect for independent thinkers who stick to their convictions despite the ridicule of others.
