He’s about as cuddly as a cactus, and his heart might be full of unwashed socks, but that doesn’t stop the Houston Symphony from telling his musical tale in the seasonal family concert How the Grinch Stole Xmas. Helping the symphony like a support chorus of Whos from Whoville will be Houston Grand Opera vocalist Reginald Smith Jr. and the Woodlands High School Chorus. And while the Cat in the Hat remains the most memorable character to spring from the fertile, creative brain of the good Dr. Seuss (born Theodor Geisel), it’s the calculating, Santa-impersonating creature of indeterminate species and a heart “two sizes too small” who lords over the holiday season.
