his year, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre (561-575-2223) truly has something for every theatergoer. Thrill seekers will go gaga for the season opener, Agatha Christie: The Mousetrap (to November 8), while musical enthusiasts will get their kicks with Billy Elliot the Musical (December 1-20). For a spectacle with early-twentieth-century charm, attend The Will Rogers Follies (January 12-31). History buffs should mark their calendars for Frost/Nixon (February 7-21), and Shakespeare lovers can tame their shrew at Kiss Me, Kate (March 8-27).
In addition to its main-stage productions, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre will also celebrate Seuss as part of “The Art of Dr. Seuss,” taking place at The Gardens Mall from January 17 to February 14. This public art installation will feature illustrations from Dr. Seuss books as well as art and sculptures Theodor Geisel created when not working under the Seuss moniker, including pieces from his “Unorthodox Taxidermy” collection. Maltz’s producing artistic director, Andrew Kato, will contribute a theatrical extravaganza to the festivities. The 20-minute musical production will be presented on a handful of dates throughout the run and will boast colorful, Seuss-inspired sets and costumes.
