“Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas” recently returned to the Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden for a successful three-week run of this New York Christmas holiday classic. The show played sold-out two-week runs in both Chicago and Boston before settling into its home at MSG. The full 14-piece orchestration by Michael Starobin was in play and the musicians worked under the Broadway contract, earning full Broadway scale wages with health and pension contributions.
