who really is the grinch who stole christmas?

i feel bad about the tourists who can not see broadway plays because of the strike. But what is more sad in particular the play the grinch who stole christmas is that working new yorkers can not really afford to take their families to see it(and only tourists can really enjoy them)look for example at the prices just to see the grinch who stole christmas:

Hey,most working families can not even afford straight up $ 1,000(not including transportation plus food plus souverneirs) that for most working families here in ny is a months salary at best...


1999 per capita income was not uniform across the boroughs. Family income was much higher in each borough.
Overall, the distribution of household income in New York City is characterized by tremendous disparities. This phenomenon is especially present in Manhattan, which in 2005 was home to the wealthiest census tract with a household income of $188,697, as well as the poorest, where household income was $9,320.[36] The disparity is driven by wage growth in high income brackets. In 2006 the average weekly wage in Manhattan was $1,453, the highest among the largest counties in the United States

Less than $10,000
$10,000 to $19,999
$20,000 to $29,999

and factor nyc is in the top 5 in high cost of living as compared to the other states:

it broke my heart when i told my son: 'hey little guy we can not afford to see the grinch nor dora the explorer..."

SO who really is The Grinch who stole Christmas???
