Union-Tribune theater critic James Hebert has released a smorgasbord of critiques for San Diego theater frequenters all dedicated to upcoming Christmas themed performances, including classics like A Christmas Carol, performed at Cygnet Theatre as a live radio performance, and nostalgic pieces like Dr. Suess' How The Grinch Stole Christmas performed at the Old Globe.
The holiday shopping season has officially launched, Christmas lights are already going up, and San Diego theater companies are turning to holiday themed fare to bring audiences in.
U-T San Diego Theater critic James Hebert serves up his recommendations for what holiday fare to check out in his preview article. Here are the shows he highlights for Midday Edition.
"Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" returns to the Old Globe for its 15th year, starring Steve Blanchard as the Mean One, alongside a cast of local favorites.
