“As Horton the Elephant, Sam Zeller finally gets a role that permits the musical theater star to show a softer, gentler side than Jean Valjean, Judd Fry, or Miles Gloriosus. He acts the part with warmth, lovability, and charm, and gets to sing the shows two loveliest songs, “Alone in the Universe” and “Solla Sollew,” with those golden Zeller pipes.”
“Sam Zeller is a splendid galumphy surprise as Horton the Elephant, graceful, clumsy, and caring, just like in his book.”
“Horton and young Jojo blend voices beautifully for “Alone in the Universe.” The two are a pleasure to hear together.
