Disappointing, Excruciating, Worst. venue. ever.

See it if you can't get enough of the Grinch story & need to see every variant of Seuss' brilliant holiday tale (which does NOT need to be enhanced!).

Don't see it if ur a fan of the original book or 1966 cartoon & aren't prepared to see an (unnecessarily) expanded musical version in a horrendous venue. Read more

Disappointing, Excruciating, Fluffy, Quirky, Painful

See it if you're looking for a relaxed theatrical environment for your toddler, and you're not picky.

Don't see it if you're a serious theatre-goer. The original rhymes are weak, the songs bland. This feels more like a theme park show (and not a good one). Read more

“Ho ho ho...As uttered by Gavin Lee...‘Santy’ Claus’s salute becomes a snarky declaration of irreverence, a sardonic retort to the whole notion of peace on earth, good will toward men...Lee clearly has a swell time with the part, and seems determined that audience members of all ages have just as much fun watching him...'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' continues to provide family-friendly fantasy, along with ideals we should all aspire to."

"This is the Grinch of all Grinch’s. He growls and purrs and prances and struts like a rock star and we love it! The audience responds with a beam of joyful light, all eyes on the stage as this magnificent production unfolds the story we already know, and yet this is so very fresh and very fun...There is not one moment of downtime. You hop on this sleigh ride and off you go."
