So I was lucky enough to get passes to see How the Grinch Stole Christmas last night at the Fox Theatre (one of the many reasons I love being a blogger). Since my 2 y/o was a little too young to really enjoy it, hubby and I just made a date night out of it.
First, I must admit, I had actually forgotten the whole story of the Grinch, so it really did take me back to my childhood a bit. Dr. Seuss characters have been known to creep me out when brought to life (I.e. Cat in the Hat), but even the hairy, abominable grinch didn’t seem to scare the kids in the audience at all.
Speaking of the Grinch, what a phenomenal performance! I’m not an acting critic by any stretch if the imagination, but I thought Stephan Karl, who played the Grinch, really brought the character to life. Also, they don’t get much more adorable than the little girl who played Cindy-Lou Who! If she doesn’t make your heart melt, you just might be…well…the Grinch!
So, to sum it all up, if you get the opportunity to see this, it’s definitely a treat for the whole family, and you won’t be disappointed!
