Get ready for a mean, green, exciting show this year with NBC's Dr. Seuss Grinch Musical. Yes, if ever there was a year to celebrate the Grinch, it's 2020. Starring Glee's Matthew Morrison as the Grinch, a man who hates holidays and fun almost as much as Ebenezer Scrooge, this is a music event you won't want to miss.

If you want to steal back Christmas this year, a great way to do it would be to watch this epic event on NBC. Staged at the Troubadour Theatre in London, the all-star cast will surely add some color (mostly green) to your holiday cheer. Obviously, Glee fans will love seeing Matthew Morrison as the Grinch, but we're also getting newcomer Amelia Minto co-starring as Cindy-Lou Who. Additionally, Descendants 3's Booboo Stewart will play a younger Max, along with Denis O'Hare.

Unlike previous NBC musicals, this one will not be aired live due to COVID and a few other things. Instead, NBC's Dr Seuss' The Grinch Musical was filmed prior to air time. This broadcast, or spectacle, will run for 2-hours and be full of mischief and fun for the whole family. Here's what you need to know and how to watch it live from anywhere in the world.
