The video below is from CBS This Morning, one of several national networks covering 12.14 Foundation's inaugural production of Seussical The Musical. The production ran to four sold-out performances in August 2013 at the Newtown, CT High School. It was a collaboration between more than 80 Newtown-area children and some of Broadway's renowned leaders, including:
Michael Unger, Director – a huge portfolio of Broadway directing credits
Van Dean, Producer – Tony Award® winning producer of Porgy and Bess
Jeffrey Saver, Music Director – composer for a large portfolio of Broadway musicals
Jennifer Paulson Lee, Choreographer – numerous Broadway choreography credits
The production also starred John Tartaglia, Sesame Street puppeteer and acclaimed Broadway performer, in the role of the Cat in the Hat.

Our Seussical production was all about helping children recover from the tragic events of 12.14.2012 through inspiration and leadership. We are very grateful to the dedicated Broadway professionals who gave their time and talents so generously. Stay tuned for information about new 12.14 programming planned for summer 2014!
