The Grinch Is Coming To Town!
THE GRINCH STEALS THE SHOW THIS HOLIDAY SEASON AS HE BRINGS BOTH MISCHIEF AND CHRISTMAS CHEER TO CHICAGO WITH THE BELOVED STORY OF DR SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL AT THE CHICAGO THEATRE.
THE LIMITED HOLIDAY ENGAGEMENT RUNS NOVEMBER 16 THROUGH NOVEMBER 25, 2018
New York, NY (May 8, 2018) – The Madison Square Garden Company announced today that a limited holiday engagement of DR. SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL will run at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden from December 13 – December 30, 2018. More than 2.1 million theater-goers across America have been delighted by this heartwarming holiday musical, which The New York Times hailed as “100 times better than any bedtime story.” Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, May 14 at 10:00AM.
Both adults and children alike will find their hearts growing a few sizes (along with the Grinch’s heart, of course) when they witness the magic of the holiday tale on stage, which will feature the hit songs, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas,” both from the original animated television special. Max the Dog serves as the story’s narrator as the scheming Grinch plans to steal Christmas away from The Whos, the loveable characters that understand and embrace the true meaning of the holidays. When the Grinch realizes that he can’t steal Christmas from Who-ville by taking presents, he returns the gifts and decorations and joins the festivities, proving that all it takes is a little kindness and holiday spirit to make any Grinch not so mean after all.
DR. SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL features magnificent 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 2018 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.
Casting will be announced at a later date.
