Simon Lipkin stars as the title character in David Greig’s adaptation of Dr Seuss’ The Lorax a tale about a moustachioed and cantankerous eco-warrior at The Old Vic theatre this Christmas.

Lipkin is no stranger to playing cartoon-like creatures having been in the ill-fated Harry Hill penned musical I Can’t Sing as a talking cat, in Avenue Q as an on-stage puppeteer and as the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland. Other recent theatre credits include Rock of Ages (where he was undoubtedly the best thing on stage!) and Assassins. Playing opposite Lipkin in the role of The Lorax’s nemisis, The Once-ler, is Urinetown‘s Simon Paisley Day.

With a combination of theatrical special effects, songs and zany humour, The Lorax is on a mission to protect the Earth from the greedy, tree-chopping, Thneed-knitting businessman known only as The Once-ler.

A vibrant Christmas show with huge family appeal The Lorax comes to The Old Vic over the festive season with a message that will speak to audiences of all ages.
