Segerstrom Center – Stefan Karl as The Grinch with Brooke Lynn Boyd as Cindy-Lou Who Photo by

Last week, we watched a performance of DR. SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa. The set was pretty incredible and beautifully illustrated just like pages out of Dr. Seuss’ book. They did a great job with the costumes, because they were beautiful, very colorful, and detailed from hair to toes. The singing was wonderful – Stefan Karl (The Grinch) has an amazing voice. He was engaging and very entertaining. The children as well as adults were laughing at every act. We were impressed with Raleigh Shuck (Cindy Lou)’s performance. She is so talented at such a young age! It was also snowing in the orchestra seats toward the end of the performance. Watching the children’s faces light up and trying to catch snowflakes was priceless.


Before the show, we took fun pictures in Santa’s sleigh driven by Max the Reindeer in the Orchestra Terrace Level. Storytime with Jim Cogan was so much fun. The children were fascinated by the stories and could not keep their eyes off of him. Also it was great to listen to the story before seeing it come alive on stage.

HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! is now one of my favorite musicals (that is saying a lot since I have had season passes for many years). It was an amazing experience with loved ones to add to this holiday season. Thanks so much, Segerstrom!
