The Grinch discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this heart-warming and hilarious musical, based on Dr. Seuss’ hugely popular best-selling books made famous by the film adaptions. Starring Griff Rhys Jones as Old Max and Matt Terry as Young Max this record setting Broadway sensation features the songs You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch and Welcome Christmas.
Magnificent sets and costumes inspired by Dr. Seuss create the whimsical world of Whoville, while Max the Dog narrates the story of the scheming Grinch whose heart is ‘two sizes too small,’ as he decides to steal Christmas away from the Whos, an endlessly joyful bunch bursting with holiday cheer.
Join in the Christmas spirit with the show critics have called ‘A GENIUS OF A SHOW! A TOTAL DELIGHT FOR BOTH KIDS AND ADULTS.’
