‘Dr Seuss’ The Grinch Musical’ starring Glee star Matthew Morrison has been receiving many thumbs down on social media after NBC gave a first look of the upcoming TV special.
The green character has been played on the silver screen by Jim Carrey in the $123 million ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ and by Benedict Cumberbatch in the $75 million animated feature ‘The Grinch’ released in 2018.
Both movies were box office hits.
However, NBC’s TV musical has been on the receiving end of criticism since it teased the special earlier today.
Comments on Twitter ranged from “please put a trigger warning. i was not prepared for that” to “this is one of the most terrifying things i’ve ever seen”.
There some good comments on the video posted to the social media site.
On Wednesday, December 9, we’re taking you on a trip to Whoville.
