Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas! plays at the Globe for its eighth year, transforming the theater into a snow-covered Who-ville. Book and lyrics are by Timothy Mason; music by Mel Marvin. Jack O'Brien directs. How the Grinch Stole Christmas! has been hailed by critics: "This Grinch is a smash," wrote the L.A. Times, while the San Diego Union-Tribune raved, "Jack O'Brien scaled this Globe holiday show...to the heartfelt humanity of the season." As an added feature of this holiday celebration, the Globe again plans to feature many wonderful characters and graphic elements from How the Grinch Stole Christmas! in a mini Who-ville on the outdoor Copley Plaza throughout the run of the production.
