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

Entertaining, Great staging, Better than expected, Slow

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) Read more

Disappointing, Fluffy, Quirky, Overrated, Insipid

See it if you get free tickets, and even then it's instantly forgettable, childish, touristy christmas fare.

Don't see it if you want an enjoyable evening of theater

Delightful, Disappointing, Dizzying, Entertaining

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.

Family friendly, Cute, Fluffy, Delightful

See it if if you love Christmas shows, with simple storytelling, this is a delightful and heartwarming story. Bring the family, ages 4+.

Don't see it if if you don't want to sit in a theatre with a lot of children, skip this one. If you don't love Xmas themed shows, or any grinch movie

Absorbing, Entertaining, Enchanting

See it if you want beautiful set designs, a heart warming story, and a family-friendly holiday experience.

Don't see it if you are a Grinch or like high-class, thought-provoking theatre.

New York Stage Review
December 14th, 2018

“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."
