Journey to Whoville and watch Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Musical online and on NBC. The beloved children's book is turning into a musical starring Matthew Morrison as the green grump and featuring the hit songs "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and "Welcome Christmas."

Dr. Seuss' timeless tale centers on the reclusive, curmudgeonly Grinch, who lives in solitude in a cave on Mt. Crumpit. He comes up with a scheme to steal Christmas from the Whos in Whoville by disguising himself as Santa Claus and taking all their gifts and decorations. But his plan doesn't quite work out when, to his surprise, the Whos still celebrate Christmas with a heartwarming display of joy and love.

Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Musical was filmed at the Troubadour Theatre in London. The book and lyrics are by Tim Mason, with music by Mel Marvin. This is NBC's sixth musical stage production broadcast in recent years. Others include The Sound of Music, Peter Pan and Hairspray.
