Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - 2014 - Off-Broadway

MSG Entertainment is proud to present Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical at the Theater at Madison Square Garden beginning Friday, December 5 through Sunday, December 28. The limited engagement in New York City has been called “100 times better than any bedside story,” by The New York Times. The classic Christmas story by Dr. Seuss springs to life on stage bringing the spirit of the holiday season to children and adults alike. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, August 20 at 10:00AM.

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.
