How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Dr. Seuss’ beloved holiday tale, is now a Broadway musical. Big League productions presents the critically acclaimed production at the Wang Theatre in Boston, MA this holiday season. Max the Dog narrates the whimsical tale of the Grinch’s plan to steal Christmas from the holiday-loving Whos. Featuring hits “Welcome Christmas” and “You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch” from the original animation, Tony Award winning director Jack O’Brien brings to life this heart-warming holiday classic.
The Holiday Pops will be back this December to continue a much-loved Boston holiday tradition. Historic Symphony Hall will become a winter wonderland as conductor Keith Lockhard and the Boston Pops Orchestra perform classically loved holiday music and have a visit from jolly old St. Nick. This year, the program is highlighted by songs such as “White Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride,” “The Twelve Days of Christmas” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” The show features the majestic voices of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus as well as different guest narrators and projections. The show will last from December 5-24 with multiple shows weekly.
The reimagined production of The Nutcracker will be the centerpiece of the Boston Ballet’s 49th season.
