The American premiere of Doctor Dolittle comes to Memphis in September. Journey to the far corners of the world with the incredible Doctor Dolittle -- and a host of amazing animals -- in this big, boisterous family musical. World-renowned veterinarian, Doctor Dolittle and his ability to "talk to the animals" takes audiences on one extraordinary adventure after another. Based on the Oscar-winning movie by Leslie Bricusse, this fun and fanciful tale entertains children and adults alike with delightful melodies and impressive special effects. Michael Curry's animal designs are comprised of many different styles of puppetry, including actors playing fully realized animals, hand puppets, marionettes, and enormous flying animals. The charming and witty score includes "When I Look in Your Eyes," "I've Never Seen Anything Like It" and the Academy Award-winning song "Talk to the Animals."
