Other musicals expected on Broadway this fall are High Fidelity, which is based on the book and movie of the same name and will test its stuff in Boston (music is by Tom Kitt, with lyrics by Amanda Green); and a limited run of Dr. Suess' How the Grinch Stole Christmas , beginning Oct. 25, because, well, it's Christmas, and something's got to fill the Hilton Theatre until The Pirate Queen arrives in 2007.
