grinchlogoNext month, THE GRINCH is coming to Chicago, as Madison Square Garden Entertainment presents their new production of DR. SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL at The Chicago Theatre for just 17 performances – Thursday, November 20 through Saturday, November 29. Actually, The Grinch has already been here – stopping into town this morning to unveil The Chicago Theatre marquee, just before scurrying back up to his mountain home above Who-ville.

The production features sets designed specifically for The Chicago Theatre as a prime backdrop for the classic tale to spring to life on stage. 

The Story:

Audiences 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 holiday. When the Grinch realizes that he can’t take Christmas away 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 joy to make any Grinch not so mean after all.
