    What the press had to say.....

    "A tasty morsel of a show for families...Others could don the chartreuse shag suit and play the killjoy who hijacks the holidays from the neighboring Whos, but no one could play it better than Patrick Page. He's got the perfect multicolored voice and mannerisms, and he knows how thick to layer on the ham to make the Grinch come vividly alive. He lifts every scene. "

    "It's still no masterpiece, but "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas: The Musical" has improved. New songs and some welcome recasting add a dash of substance to the kid-friendly tuner...Yet despite these touch-ups, Mason's writing is still largely uninspired. His stabs at Seussian rhymes remain awkward, and his book retains some glaring errors....Kids, of course, aren't likely to notice dramaturgical foibles, and the show will probably please family crowds. But this season's version should be considered a solid step forward, not a final draft."
