Come Into the Room

Dr. Seuss, king of kids books, had the formula down. Pair cute creatures with a couple of bad-ass rhymes, and boom: instant gold. It can't be that hard, right? Here goes: Seuss is a pimp/ He ain't no wimp/ That green eggs and ham/ Much better than Spam. Word. If your kids dig Dr. Seuss, chances are they'll love Julia Donaldson, author of the award-winning The Gruffalo and also Room on the Broom, an adventure about a flying witch and her furry friends who confront a dragon with a wicked craving for witch. The Tall Stories production company adapted Donaldson's book into a musical. Room on the Broom runs for one performance 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Eisemann Center, 2352 Performance Drive in Richardson. Tickets are $11 to $21. To buy tickets, call 972-744-4650 or visit
