How the Grinch Stole Christmas Tickets:
“An extraordinary performance! 100 times better than any bedtime story.” – The New York Times
“A GENIUS OF A SHOW! A TOTAL DELIGHT FOR BOTH KIDS AND ADULTS. For a family on a holiday-season outing, it’s the right ticket.” – Gannett Papers
Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical is a Broadway production based on the 1957 Dr. Suess book. Jack O’Brien first created the production in the mid-1990s for the Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis, and director Matt August brought it to life on Broadway in 2006. With book and lyrics by Timothy Mason and music by Mel Marvin, the musical successfully premiered on Broadway, becoming the first Broadway production to run 12 performances in a week. The musical topped the Broadway Box Office grosses within its first week, and quickly surpassed Wicked’s achievements.
Orlando Weekly describes the musical as the American equivalent to England’s Christmas pantomimes and said, “Colorful, comfortable and slightly campy, but competently executed, this is the theatrical equivalent of a hot cup of cocoa with a side of sugar cookie. It won’t satisfy your hunger for a full meal, but complaining about something so sweet and simple might earn me coal in my stocking.”
“THE MOST LOVEABLE CHRISTMAS VILLAIN OF THEM ALL! This Grinch brings the Dr. Seuss classic fancifully to life – you might find your heart growing a few sizes, too.” – Associated Press
“THE GRINCH’S TRIUMPH IS DEFINITELY BROADWAY’S GAIN. The spectacle warms the hearts of everybody.” – The Journal News
The musical tells the classic tale of the mean and scheming Grinch with “a heart two sizes too small,” as he decides to try to steal Christmas away from the holiday-loving Whos. The Grinch soon realizes that there is more to Christmas than he bargained for and finally feels the spirit of joy. With music and lyrics by Mel Marvin and Timothy Mason, the timeless story of the true meaning of Christmas is told with fresh life.
“To think about this guy who sat down in1957 and wrote this story that has resonated with people for decades,” Barry Edelstein said. “He captured lightning in a bottle. He touched magic. It’s the extraordinary power of the story itself, the mythology and fable of it, that keeps engaging people.”
Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical is one for the entire family to enjoy. The energetic, funny, and engaging performances by the cast will surely keep you entertained throughout the show. Add in some occasional adult humor that will amuse parents and grandparents, the musical is surely a must-watch this holiday season.
Although the musical has essentially kept the same for the past 25 years in terms of staging, costumes, and script, the soundtrack has progressively been expanded to include some of the songs from the cherished 1966 animated TV adaptation of the book. Young Max, the Grinch’s dog, first sung one line of the song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” in 2003, and in 2007, the song’s whole (including a sing-along section for the audience) was added. Later, “Fah Who Foraze,” the Whos’ “Welcome Christmas” song, was added, replacing the tongue-twisting classic “Never Never Very Merry Christmas.”
