Grinch Tries to Steal Christmas from the Whos Over at The Bushnell


Big League Productions presents the musical production Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! at The Bushnell for 11 performances Tuesday, Nov. 20 – Sunday, Nov. 25.
 
Performances are Tuesday and Wednesday at 7 pm, Friday and Saturday at 11 am, 2 pm and 7 pm and Sunday at 11 am, 2 pm and 5 pm. There is no performance Thursday, Nov. 22, Thanksgiving Day. The Bushnell is located at 166 Capitol Avenue in downtown Hartford.

The Grinch broke box office records for two consecutive years on Broadway during its holiday engagements at the St. James (2007) and Hilton (2006) theatres in New York. Since then, thousands of families across America have seen  it.
 
The Musical 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 as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is "two sizes too small," decides to steal Christmas away from the holiday-loving Whos. Sets (John Lee Beatty) and costumes (Robert Morgan) inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original illustrations help transport audiences to the whimsical world of Whoville created here through the music and book of Mel Marvin and Timothy Mason.
 
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 3-time Tony Award® winning director, Jack O’Brien. 

Tickets begin at $20: 860-987-5900; www.bushnell.org. For more information please visit grinchmusical.com or www.bushnell.org.
