Nov. 9-14 Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical Orpheum Theater, 409 S. 16th St. Tues.-Thurs. 7:30 p.m., Fri.-Sat. 8 p.m., Sat.-Sun. 11 a.m., 2 p.m. & 5 p.m.; $25 omahaperformingarts.org Every year around Thanksgiving I put on my one-piece pajamas (with feet), lie down on my stomach with my head resting in my palms and enjoy CBS’ yearly showing of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Much like A Christmas Story, it’s become a tradition in my family to prove who can recite the dialogue word for word the best. It never gets old. For one week this November, your family can turn the TV off and enjoy the record-breaking Broadway holiday production of the Dr. Seuss Classic at the Orpheum. The story takes on a new perspective, with Max the Dog narrating, and invites the audience to sing along to the hit songs “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch!” and “Welcome Christmas.” Hailing from Iceland and making his American stage debut is stage actor Stefán Karl, in the role of The Grinch. “It’s a dream role”, Karl told the Worcester Telegram and Gazette. “It fits me like a glove. I hate Christmas a little bit myself.” Perhaps, at the end of the 66-show tour, his heart will grow two more sizes after learning to love who-hash and roast-beast.
