Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas! Information

One of Dr. Seuss' most loved (and loathed) characters returns to the New York stage for the 2018 Holiday season as How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical plays a limited engagement from December 13 to 30, 2018.

The musical also features the hit songs, "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and "Welcome Christmas," made famous by the original animated television special.

In case you missed that last part, PHENOMENAL! We know the Grinch, we've all grown up with him, so we have expectations, Lee takes those expectations, parlays them into a Christmas lights knotted bunch and blows the fuse. This is the Grinch of all Grinch's. He growls and purrs and...
