DR SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL is the record-setting Broadway sensation which features the hit songs “ You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch ” and “ Welcome Christmas ” from the original animated television special.
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.
Magnificent sets and costumes inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original illustrations help transport audiences to the whimsical world of Whoville, as this sparkling production breathes new life into this timeless story of the true meaning of Christmas.
Don’t miss what The New York Times calls “ AN EXTRAORDINARY PERFORMANCE! 100 times better than any bedside story.”
