In this surreal musical adventure, a child dreading his piano lessons falls asleep only to be menaced in his dream by his piano teacher, now turned into a tyrant ruler, whose autocratic regime persecutes and imprisons all musicians who don’t play the piano. Then, in some sort of Stockhausian nightmare, creates a piano of such tremendous proportions it can only be played by the combined efforts of hundreds of children. Who could think up such a plot? The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T. is the only feature film written by Dr. Seuss and bears all the marks of his charming and inventive imaginatio.
