‘There’s a Grinch in everybody’: Shuler Hensley talks playing the Grinch at MSG on OutQ

With roles like Frankenstein, Javert in Les Miserables, and Kerchak in Disney’s Tarzan under his belt, Shuler Hensley knows how to steal a show. This year, Hensley is stealing Christmas as Mr. Grinch, that bad banana with a greasy black peel. No stranger to playing villains, Hensley took the stage Monday as the Grinch at The Theater at Madison Square Garden. How The Grinch Stole Christmas will run until December 28, and Keith Price sat down with Hensley on OutQ to chat about what makes the timeless classic the hottest holiday ticket in town.

“It’s a story that was a big part of my childhood growing up … To take everything that they have in the show that people recognize, like You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch, the Whos’ carols around the Christmas tree, and then they have all these original songs that are funny and wink-wink to the adults. It’s not your typical just kids show. It’s a true family show,” Hensley said. “There’s a Grinch in everybody. Just try to go shopping on Christmas Eve. You’ll find plenty of Grinches out there.”
