‘Welcome Christmas’ indeed! Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical is the perfect holiday show for the whole family. We got a chance to check out the musical Tuesday night which was the opening night for Atlanta, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
Most everyone knows the story of Mr. Grinch, but in case you don’t – The mean and anti-Christmas Mr. Grinch decides that he’s had enough of the holiday, and he’s going to steal it away from the eternally optimistic and adorable Whos. However, a certain little Who makes a rather large impression on him, and after he has time to reflect – his whole outlook might just change.
It’s the perfect holiday tale, and there’s something extra enchanting about seeing this play surrounded by little ones. There’s one scene towards the end where Mr. Grinch has issues saying the word “Christmas,” and that’s when nearly every kid in the Fox Theater chimed in to help him say it. It was a wonderful moment for adults as they witnessed the whimsical and pure holiday spirit in the children all around them. It was a magical experience for everyone.
You can pick up tickets for an Atlanta show from now through December 4th! They can be purchased through the FOX Theatre Box Office or online at www.ticketmaster.com!
