It’s a Good One, Mr. Grinch

11-21grinch

Brought to town by the Rochester Broadway Theatre League and four-time Tony Award winner Albert Nocciolino, “Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical” is a wonderful night of whimsical fun for the entire family. The ninety-minute production (no intermission!) is just right for the little ones, and allows Mom & Dad to stay comfortably settled in their seats. The sets, sound, costumes, and performances take you on a festive ride to whoville. Old Max (Bob Lauder), the narrator, has a glorious, Santa-like voice. He keeps the musical moving seamlessly, accompanied by Young Max (Andreas Wyder). The Grinch (Stefan Karl) is just what the Dr. ordered: perfect! His comedic timing is top-notch –it is obvious to anyone he’s having a blast in the role. Cindy -Lou Who (Piper Birney) was downright precious, and what a voice! As they say in the south: bless her heart. Head to your sleigh! Don’t miss the Grinch in Rochester through December 15. Information available at RBTL.org.
