Based on the all-time favourite book by Dr Seuss, The Cat in the Hat has been developed into a magically witty play by Britain’s National Theatre. After a successful staging in 2012 and 2015, TLC has faithfully reproduced the play in Mandarin – 戴高帽子的猫 for children aged 2 years and above.
I don’t think the story need much introduction so I don’t think I need to elaborate further.
When I see names like this Danny Yeo (杨君伟), Sugie Phua and Ann Lek in the lineup and production, I know this adaptation of this well-loved story would not disappoint me – in fact I have tremendous expectation for it , like in many other SRT’s theatre productions that my kids had watched. We have watched the English adaptation a few years ago, and my kids enjoyed it tremendously – all the funny antics of The Cat in the Hat – it will be interesting to see how all the English words rhyming are being translated into Mandarin by the talented Danny Yeo.
