Dr Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Re-discover the magic of Dr. Seuss’ classic holiday tale as it comes to life on stage. Originally conceived by the three time Tony Award-winning director, Jack O’Brien, the whimsical world of Whoville is beautifully realized by an A-list creative team in this delightful musical production.
Featuring the hit songs “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas,” The Grinch discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this heart-warming holiday classic. Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is “two sizes too small,” decides to steal Christmas away from the holiday loving Whos.
