Wang Theatre

The Grinch is approximately 90 minutes long, with no intermission.

Please be aware that Stuart Street between Washington Street and Tremont Street will be closed beginning Friday evening December 7 until Sunday evening December 9 to allow for the dismantling of a crane used at the construction site on the corner of Stuart and Tremont. There will be traffic detours set-up in the area which will affect traffic approaching the Wang Theatre, particularly from Interstate 93. There are numerous performances scheduled all weekend at the Wang, Shubert and other theatres in the area and traffic is expected to be extremely congested around these performances. Please allow extra time when planning your visit to the Wang Theatre and take public transportation if possible.

About the Show

Just Announced: Gavin Lee, star of SpongeBob Squarepants The Musical, will be playing the Grinch!

THE GRINCH broke box office records for two consecutive years on Broadway during its holiday engagements at the St. James and Hilton theatres in New York. Since then, more than 1.5 million theatre-goers across America have been delighted by this heart-warming holiday musical, which The New York Times praised as “100 times better than any bedtime story” and the Gannett papers hailed as “A genius of a show! A total delight for both kids and adults.”

Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! 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. Magnificent sets (John Lee Beatty) and costumes (Robert Morgan) inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original illustrations help transport audiences to the whimsical world of Whoville, while the Music and Book of Mel Marvin and Timothy Mason breathe new life into this timeless story of the true meaning of Christmas. The 2018 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.
