With the Christmas season getting closer it’s usually time when theme parks break out the decorations and music for the winter holiday, and places like Disney and Universal are no stranger to this. Disney converts the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland into the Nightmare Before Christmas, while Universal Studios sees Seuss Landing being visited by a very particularly Green Santa Clause Imposter.
But this year it’s a little different.
This year the annual Christmas stage show “Grinchmas” will be playing at what was once the home to the Blue Man Group. Last year was the final performance of the bizarre trio at Universal Studios Orlando’s City Walk with no sign of their return.
So the building is being repurposed for the Christmas show. Instead of being set outside or at some sound stage the show will have a full theater which will provide plenty of comfortable seating for those wanting to see a Christmas Show while enjoying their stay at the resort.
It is currently unknown if the show will be permanently moving in every Christmas season, but it will be a welcomed change for the long running show. Perhaps even more shows will eventually run throughout the year. Maybe a Cat in the Hat show 9 months out of the year and the other 3 belonging to The Grinch? Who knows.
Do you think it is a smart move?
