The Cat in the Hat will pay Tysons a visit this spring, and unlike in his eponymous book, he’s giving plenty of advance notice.
The anthropomorphic feline is set to appear alongside the Lorax, the Grinch and other classic Theodor Geisel characters in “The Dr. Seuss Experience” that will take up residence at Tysons Corner Center starting April 7.
“The Dr. Seuss Experience is an interactive immersion into the wondrous world of Dr. Seuss,” a press release says. “Inside, guests of all ages will be transported through an awe-inspiring, sensory spectacle including nine different, visually stunning Dr. Seuss worlds, with the opportunity to meet iconic characters, live the classic stories and experience Dr. Seuss like never before.”
The interactive pop-up will feature staff in costume as notable characters and sets like Circus McGurkus, the clover forests from “Horton Hears a Who” and a balloon maze inspired by “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” Other attractions include a carousel ride, carnival games and “exclusive, bespoke merchandise.”
The installation is open to people of all ages, though kids must be accompanied by an adult. The venue is designed to be fully accessible to people with disabilities, according to the website.
Produced by the live entertainment companies Kilburn Live and Fever, “The Dr. Seuss Experience” is coming to Tysons after making stops in Toronto, Houston, Chicago and Denver.
Per the press release, Tysons Corner Center will be the first location with a Sneetches Mirror Maze, a nod to the 1961 short story intended to be an anti-discrimination parable.
The installation will be around for a “limited” amount of time, though an end date for the Tysons run hasn’t been set yet, according to a public relations representative.
A waitlist to get advance access to tickets is now open. Tickets will officially go on sale to the public at noon next Wednesday (Feb. 15).

VHC Health hosted its annual Trauma Survivors Day, honoring four former trauma patients and their care team on Tuesday, May 16. For many of these patient honorees, this event was the first time they were reunited with the team of healthcare professionals who cared for them after their injury. Both the healthcare team and the honorees expressed gratitude for the opportunity to thank, hug, and simply see one another again after their experience in the Trauma Center.
In May of 2021, the Commonwealth of Virginia designated VHC Health as a Level II Trauma Center. This designation filled a critical community need; previously, the closest trauma center for Arlington County was in Fairfax or Washington, DC. Since becoming a Level II Trauma Center, VHC Health has provided care for nearly 2,000 trauma patients each year.
