“Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical” is returning for ten performances at the Fox Theatre from Dec. 7 to Dec. 12 as part of the 40th Anniversary Season.
Hailed by The New York Times as “100 times better than any bedtime story,” this classic holiday musical will enchant adults and children alike.
“The Grinch” broke box office records for two consecutive years on Broadway during its holiday engagements at the St. James and Hilton theaters in New York. More than 2.1 million theatergoers across America have been delighted by this heart-warming holiday musical, which the Gannett papers hailed as “A genius of a show! A total delight for both kids and adults.”
Audiences will discover the magic of Dr. Seuss’ classic holiday tale as it comes to life live on stage. 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.
“Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical” features elaborate sets designed by John Lee Beatty and costumes designed by Robert Morgan, inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original book. Mel Marvin and Timothy Mason’s music and book breathe new life into this timeless story.
The 2021 production is directed by Matt August and choreographed by Bob Richard, based on the original choreography by John DeLuca and originally created by three-time Tony Award-winning director, Jack O’Brien.
