For a sure-fire kid-pleaser, you can count on Seussical at the Wheelock Family Theatre (January 30-March 1), featuring Andrew Barbato -- a recent stunner as Peter Pan -- as the Cat in the Hat. Vermont's Bread and Puppet Theater returns to the BCA's grand Cyclorama space for The Sourdough Philosophy Spectacle (January 29-February 1), and there's another circus in town as well: Cirque Le Masque's Carnivale at the Cutler Majestic Theatre (January 21-25).
