Discover the magic of Dr. Seuss’ classic holiday tale as it comes to life on stage. Featuring the hit songs “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas." Starring Gavin Lee ("SpongeBob") as the Grinch. More…
The Grinch discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this heart-warming holiday classic. Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is “two sizes too small,” decides to steal Christmas away from the holiday-loving Whos.
"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." Full Review
“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."

See it if You love the Grinch and aren't 100% married to one of the movies.
Don't see it if You don't want to get ancient diseases from that nasty Hulu Theater (which desperately needs cleaning)
See it if You enjoy commercial children's theatre. You want to taste the most delicious (though $$$) Bailey's hot chocolate of your life. & GAVIN LEE!
Don't see it if You dislike Christmas. You are hoping for a high-end production. You dislike kitsch.
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.
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).
See it if You loved the artwork in the books, because that’s what the staging is based on. They use Max the dog as the framing, and it works perfectly
Don't see it if You aren’t into moderately cheesy Xmas stories. If you’ve seen the original, you know what you’re getting into, more or less.
