Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical at The Fabulous Fox Theatre!


This evening, I took our oldest son, Roland Jay to see "Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical," located at The Fabulous Fox Theatre!

The Grinch startled Roland Jay in the beginning of the show, but mid-way through he giggled the entire time and we both had a blast! This is our oldest son's first musical and definitely not his last!

The show features the hit songs "You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch" and "Welcome Christmas” (written by Albert Hague and Dr. Seuss) from the original animated series. Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is "two sizes too small," decides to steal Christmas away from the Holiday loving Whos.
















The classic, whimsical tale will enchant audiences for six days only in Atlanta, November 29-December 4 as part of the 2011-12 Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Atlanta season.

PINK SARIS to broadcast on HBO2 | Wednesday, November 30

PINK SARIS to broadcast on HBO2 | Wednesday, November 30

“…a remarkably honest and urgent film, and Sampat is an unforgettable character.”
Anthropology Review Database

“Highly Recommended.”
Educational Media Reviews Online

“A girl’s life is cruel...A woman’s life is very cruel,” notes Sampat Pal, the complex protagonist at the center of PINK SARIS, internationally acclaimed director Kim Longinotto’s latest foray into the lives of extraordinary women. Sampat should know – like many others she was married as a young girl into a family which made her work hard and beat her often. But unusually, she fought back, leaving her in-laws and eventually becoming famous as a champion for beleaguered women throughout Uttar Pradesh, many of whom find their way to her doorstep.

PINK SARIS is an unflinching and often amusing look at the all-women vigilante Gulabi Gang in Northern India and their charismatic leader, who acts as judge and jury for girls and women who are being abused by outlawed patriarchal traditions and the caste system.

PINK SARIS will be broadcast on HBO2, Wednesday, November 30. To see local listings, click here. To view the trailer for the film, click here.
