Singer Carter hits Broadway in ‘Seussical’

Producers hope teen crooner can give CPR to B.O.

Broadway producers hoping for a vacancy may have to wait a little longer before “Seussical” leaves the Richard Rodgers Theatre.

Barry and Fran Weissler, producers of the beleaguered musical, have nabbed teen singing star Aaron Carter to resuscitate ticket sales now that Rosie O’Donnell has left the show.

Tickets sales last week fell to $273,173 on a gross potential of $755,427 without O’Donnell, who boosted sales to a high of $618,040.

Carter will essay the role of the Boy in “Seussical,” with Cathy Rigby taking over for David Shiner as the Cat in the Hat on March 15.

Carter, 13, has a platinum album, “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” to his name. He also opened for Britney Spears and headed his own European tour.

He will segue into the tuner, based on the works of Dr. Seuss, on April 4, after completing his North American tour.

“We’ll see how long we can keep him in the show,” Barry Weissler said of the show’s newest, youngest addition. The producer may not have him for long. If the recording star’s fan Web sites are to be believed, Carter looks to be touring again this summer.
