Who Likes Christmas? Whos Like Christmas!

Dr. Seuss' "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" delights at the Merriam through December 29.

Now playing at the Merriam Theater is the musical adaptation of the much beloved storybook and movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Narrated by the Grinch’s dog Max as he reminisces about that fateful year in Whoville as he travels through town some years later, telling the story of how the Grinch went from being a grump whose heart was two sizes too small to a day where he, he himself, The Grinch carved the roast beast! The Grinch himself is a boisterous Broadway character that is mean yet somehow not scary, and the citizens of Whoville are simple and sweet. The music in this show had the audience dancing in their seats and little Cindy Lou Who practically stole the show from the big green guy.

Expect lots of laughs, audience interaction, and even a sing-a-long near the end because even though you think you know this story, this rendition is packed with surprises and fun!

Tickets are on sale now and start at $45. Tickets can be purchased by calling (215) 893-1999, or visiting www.kimmelcenter.org

On the morning of December 22, there will be a special sensory-friendly performance with relaxed house rules, designated quiet areas, trained staff, and sensory kits (fidget toys, headphones, etc.), planned in conjunction with Art-Reach.
