Green Christmas

comment
Mr. Grinch -- an infamous sociopath, and greater than Scrooge himself in feats of holiday-related misanthropy. He harbors a hatred for all things Christmas that most reserve strictly for abhorrent holiday tunes and January's bank statements. But even the mean one himself discovers the joy of Christmas as he witnesses Whoville's resilience in the face of his tyranny. It may be corny, and it's probably cliche, but when his undersized heart grows three sizes at the sight of those happy Whos singing "Fah Who Foraze!" even the grinchiest holiday hater can't help but be filled with a bit of Christmas cheer. Would things be different had they sung "Christmas Shoes" or Wham's "Last Christmas" instead? Thankfully, we'll never know. Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!: The Musical descends upon the Peabody Opera House (Fourteenth and Market streets; 314-241-1888 or www.peabodyoperahouse.com) for a special engagement. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday (December 7 through 18), and tickets are $25 to $62.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 7. Continues through Dec. 18, 2011
