Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical, part of the Fifth Third Bank Fox Theatre Series

Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical looks back on the events of history’s most famous holiday heist through the eyes and narration of an elderly Max, the Grinch’s long-suffering pooch. When the Grinch can’t bear the thought of another Christmas polluting Mount Crumpit’s airspace with its cacophony of jing-tinglers and blum-bloopers, he hatches a scheme to stop the holiday from coming. Soon enough, he’s skulking through the darkened homes of Whoville in a jerry-rigged Santa disguise, stripping decorations, retracting Christmas trees like umbrellas, yanking candy canes out of the arms of sleeping babes, and gleefully drop-kicking presents into his enormous sack. The production finds inventive ways to replicate all the iconic imagery from the book—down to the overstuffed sleigh teetering atop a mountain peak—but also conjures just the right song for everything, from the comedy-duo antics of the Grinch and Max to the growing suspicions of the adorable Cindy Lou Who.

Shining out from this lineup of new tunes are the cherubic strains of “Welcome Christmas” and the rumbling basso profundo slander of “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”—both made famous by Chuck Jones’ classic animated adaptation. The backdrops, however, mirror Dr. Seuss’ hand-drawn illustrations, and the cast pads their red long johns to make their proportions look just as cartoonishly off-kilter as Whoville’s residents. Yet the greatest attention to detail is lavished on the Grinch himself, who dominates the stage with his matted green fur, floppy fingers, and—through the magic of Method acting and elective surgery—a heart withered by exactly two sizes. Not content with simply transgressing Whoville’s walls, the Grinch transgresses the fourth wall as well with asides to the audience and mean-spirited pranks on the narrator. But even a brain full of spiders and a soul full of gunk can’t shut out the true spirit of Christmas, which may prove sweeter than any slice of roast beast.
