As a child, we have all heard the story of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, whether it be you reading it straight from Dr. Seuss’ collection or watching a green Jim Carrey strut his stuff in the silver screen. With so many generations of kids mesmerized by how someone can steal Christmas, it is therefore no surprise that the Grinch would find itself on stage.
Just a few days from now, How the Grinch Stole Christmas would be launched at Boston’s Wang Theater. The cast would be led by Jeff MacCarthy, one of the most notable stage actors of today. Jeff MacCarthy is known for his role as the Beast in the stage play version of The Beauty and the Beast. He has also played the role of Billy Flynn in the stage version of “Chicago” and was part of the play, “Arms and the Man”. He is no stranger to costumes and make up that take hours to apply having come from a production that required some of the most complicated costume and make-up.
The stage play, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, is based on the children’s story of the same title penned by the prolific writer Dr. Seuss. Presented in rhyming verses, the book was first published in 1957 under both the Random House Publications and the Redbook Publications. It is considered as one of the top 100 books for kids.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas discusses the commercialization of Christmas and brings home the point that Christmas is more than just great food and lots of gifts. The plot of the book revolves around The Grinch, the role that Jeff MacCarthy would be playing in the upcoming November 23 show. The Grinch happens to be a cave-dwelling creature that was touted to have a small heart. He is said to live in Mount Crumpit located just north of Whoville. Because he can’t help but hear the noise as the people of Whoville are preparing of Christmas, he decided to take away their food, gifts, and Christmas decor. When he had left with everything, he was surprised to see that Christmas still came. This made him realize that Christmas is more than just all the things that he had stolen. As with all stories, this realization gave him a change of heart. How the Grinch Stole Christmas has been adapted in the silver screen as well as in an audiobook.
The stage play, How the Grinch Stole Christmas would run between the months of November and December, from the 23rd to the 9th. You can catch Jeff MacCarthy at the Boston run of the said play which would be held at the Wang Theater. Other versions of the play are also concurrently being done in such areas as the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts and the Old Globe Theater in San Diego.
