the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical is now playing at
the Detroit Opera House until December 30, 2012. I was there on
Wednesday, Dec. 19, which was Kids' Night sponsored by Michigan
Education Savings Plan (MESP) with pre-show activities for the
kids in the lobby beginning at 6 p.m. Kids had the opportunity
to make Christmas ornaments, interact with cast members and sample
free ice cream. Souvenirs from the Musical were also on hand in
Musical began at 7:40 p.m., which was about 10 minutes late, beginning
with Old Max the Dog (Bob Lauder) narrating this holiday tale,
"The Who's in Whoville Love Christmas." They are festive
and excited for the holiday. The Grinch lives north of Whoville.
He hates Christmas and the Christmas season.
Grinch is a scheming person whose heart is "two sizes too
small" and he hated the Whos. The Grinch says there must
be a way to keep Christmas from coming. He doesn't like Christmas
carols either. He wanted to stop Christmas altogether.
the Grinch puts on a Santa suit and pretends he's St. Nick. He
goes to Whoville and steals the presents and food and decorations
in Whoville including the Christmas trees. Cindy-Lou (Jenna Iacono)
wakes up from her sleep and sees the Grinch taking all the toys.
All the things were snatched through the night. But she loves
him and hugs him. She is adorable.
the Grinch feels bad for taking the presents and all of a sudden
he got a big heart and wants to give the presents back. So how
does it all end? The Whos told it best, while snow was coming
down in the audience.
show was very entertaining and a great holiday treat. The people
of Whoville were dressed in red and white while the Grinch was
in green, just as in the Dr. Seuss book. The hit song "You're
a mean one, Mr. Grinch" and "Welcome Christmas"
were some of the songs that were recognizable to everyone. The
musical ended at 9 p.m. with no intermission.
would definitely recommend How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
