The stage production, based on the original book written by Dr. Seuss, was conceived by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O' Brien. Book and lyrics are by Timothy Mason with music by Mel Marvin and additional music and lyrics by Albert Hague and Dr. Seuss. It will play New York through Dec. 30.
The Grinch was previously seen on Broadway in 2006 and 2007 and made its Los Angeles debut in 2009. The MSG engagement is part of a holiday mini-tour that launched in Hartford, CT, Nov. 20.
The ensemble includes William Bailey, Jamie Beth Barton, Alex Chester, Matt Densky, Anoinette DiPietropolo, Amy Griffin, Jamey Hood, Liesl Jaye, Dennis Kenney, Ivory McKay, Candice Nicole, Shane Rhoades, Anette Michelle Sanders, Jamison Stern, Lilly Tobin, Peyton Royal and Stefanie O'connell.
The production features new sets designed specifically for the Theatre at MSG.
Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical features the beloved songs "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and "Welcome Christmas" from the original animated TV special. Max the Dog narrates, while the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is "two sizes too small," decides to steal Christmas away from holiday-loving Whos of Whoville.
