Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical

Hailed as “100 times better than any bedtime story” by The New York Times!

Both adults and children alike 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.

The Chicago Theatre

175 N. State Street
Chicago, Illinois 60601



The grandeur of The Chicago Theatre often leaves its visitors breathless. The elegant lobby, majestic staircase and beautiful auditorium complete with murals above the stage and on the ceiling are components of an amazing building called “the Wonder Theatre of the World” when it opened on October 26, 1921. The 3,600 seat auditorium is seven stories high, more than one half of a city block wide, and nearly as long. The vertical sign “C-H-I-C-A-G-O,” at nearly six stories high, is one of the few such signs in existence today. A symbol of State Street and Chicago, the sign and marquee are landmarks in themselves, as is the 29-rank Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ. During its first 40 years, The Chicago Theatre presented the best in live and film entertainment, including John Phillip Sousa, Duke Ellington, Jack Benny, and Benny Goodman. In recent years, an array of the entertainment world’s brightest stars and greatest productions have graced the stage, including Allman Brothers Band, Arcade Fire, Blues Traveler, Kelly Clarkson, Harry Connick Jr, Ellen DeGeneres, Aretha Franklin, Kathy Griffin, Gipsy Kings, Indigo Girls, Alicia Keys, David Letterman, Lyle Lovett, Oasis, Dolly Parton, Prince, Diana Ross, Van Morrison, Widespread Panic and Robin Williams.
