    ‘Skippyjon Jones Snow What’ Continues Tale of a Conflicted Cat

    Laurel Graeber

    July 12, 2015: Skippyjon Jones is a Siamese cat who believes he’s a Chihuahua. You might think he’d require a veterinary psychologist or at least a visit from Jackson Galaxy, Animal Planet’s punked-out cat whisperer. But Theatreworks USA has a better idea: Just put the conflicted kitty onstage and let him act out his fantasies. The result is “Skippyjon Jones Snow What,” this company’s latest family musical in its program of free summer performances at the Lucille Lortel Theater. As young readers know, Skippyjon began life in the imagination of Judy Schachner, author of picture books about his south-of-the-border dreams. Three years ago, Kevin Del Aguila and Eli Bolin did the first Theatreworks Skippyjon adaptation, and they’ve reprised their collaboration for “Snow What.” And, amigos, I’m happy to report that this effort is just as clever, comical and boisterous.
