Movie Info

Dr. Seuss' beloved book tells the story of a reclusive Grinch who plotted from his cave atop snowy Mt. Crumpit to steal Christmas from the Whos in Who-ville. Then on Christmas Eve, disguised as Santa Claus and enlisting his loyal dog Max as a reindeer, the Grinch traveled to Who-ville to scoop up the Whos' gifts and decorations. Much to his surprise on Christmas morning, the Whos were unfazed and celebrated the holiday with a heartwarming display of joy and love.

This attempt at the heartwarming tale makes the Grinch's hatred of song and dance seem reasonable. Halfway through, you might find yourself advocating for the Whos to adopt his way of life.

It really feels like they were going for a zany, over-the-top vibe to match the Seussian weirdness driving this story, and while the set design and costumes got there, the performances, songs, and blocking didn't quite make it.

December 10, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…

A pelvic-thrusting, bad-punning, screeching version of the green curmudgeon was not what anyone wanted or needed in 2020. Morrison did his level best -- he's a good performer, but the part simply never should have been written.

December 10, 2020 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The show has little in the way of logical character arcs, meaningful themes, or even basic plot momentum.

December 10, 2020 | Full Review…

The show felt bloated and flat, with scant sense of the magic in all the fluff employed to flesh out the Grinch's journey from Christmas-stealing curmudgeon to his the spirit-of-the-holiday epiphany.

You'll never see the Grinch the same way after watching this mess.
