On Nov. 20-29, Chicago Theater will present the Grinch in his musical “Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas!” The classic Christmas story by Dr. Seuss comes to life on stage, bringing the spirit of the holiday season. Audiences will feel the magic of the holiday with the hit songs, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas.”

“I live with my dog Max,” said the Grinch in an interview with the Lawndale News. “I stole Christmas because people get it wrong. They think it’s all about presents and all. It’s about family.”

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.

“Have a wonderful holiday season. Love your family and come see me in the Chicago Theater,” said the Grinch to all of the Lawndale readers. “Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas!” features sets specially designed for The Chicago Theater with costumes inspired by Dr. Seuss’ illustrations. The 2014 production is directed by Matt August and choreographed by Bob Richard based on the original choreography by John DeLuca and originally created by three-time Tony Award® winning director Jack O’Brien. The ticket price ranges between $35 and $125. For more information, visit: www.thechicagotheatre.com.
