Dr. Suess' How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical is in town for the holidays. But you'll have to hurry if you want to catch him because he is only here for a limited engagement. This lively holiday show will be at the renowned Chicago Theatre through November 29, 2014.
I found this show to be a mix of holiday nostalgia, spirited sing-a-longs and show-stopping scenery -- served alongside a heavy dose of schtick (that includes Grinch farts -- I could have skipped that part).
The story is narrated by the charming Max the Dog character. Cindy Lou Who couldn't be any cuter. The Grinch is larger than life and brings a TON of personality to the role. He was quite likable actually. In addition, the staging and scenery is really something. If you are looking for a light-hearted holiday show that your kids will enjoy, my eight year-old Brendan and I both highly recommend it.
