DETROIT – Broadway In Detroit is bringing the holiday classic "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical" to the Detroit Opera House, Dec. 18 – 30, with a special Kids Night on Dec. 19. Tickets for the Detroit performance of "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical" will go on sale Sunday, Oct. 28 at 10 a.m.
The critically acclaimed, Broadway record-breaking production features the hit songs "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and "Welcome Christmas” (written by Albert Hague and Dr. Seuss) from the original animated series. Max the Dog narrates this classic holiday tale that will entertain the whole family as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is "two sizes too small," decides to steal Christmas away from the Whos, an endlessly cheerful bunch bursting with holiday spirit.
"Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical" broke box office records for two consecutive years on Broadway during its holiday engagements at the St. James (2007) and Hilton (2006) theaters in New York. Since then, thousands of families across America have been delighted by this heart-warming holiday musical, which The New York Times praised as “100 times better than any bedside story” and the Gannett papers hailed as “A genius of a show! A total delight for both kids and adults.”
Magnificent sets (John Lee Beatty) and costumes (Robert Morgan) inspired by Dr. Seuss' original illustrations help transport audiences to the whimsical world of Whoville, while the music and book of Mel Marvin and Timothy Mason breathe new life into this timeless story of the true meaning of Christmas. The 2012 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.
"Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical" stars Stefan Karl, donning the green fur as the Grinch for his fifth holiday season. Karl is also the star of Nickelodeon's hit show, "LazyTown" where he delights as the evil Robbie Rotten.
