The Perfect Holiday Outing

The broadway record-breaking, Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole  Christmas! The Musical features the hit songs “You’re A Mean One Mr.  Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas” from the original animated 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 (John Lee Beatty) and costumes (Robert Morgan) inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original illustrations help transport  audiences to the whimsical world of Whoville, while the Music and Book of Mel Marvin and Timothy Mason breathe new life into this timeless story of the true meaning of Christmas. The 2013 production is directed by  Matt August and choreographed by Bob Richard based on the original  choreography by John DeLuca and originally created by 3-time Tony Award® winning director, Jack O’Brien.
