Cindy Lou Who invites audiences into her beaten-down trailer on the side of Mount Crumpit for a twisted Christmas tell-all in a satirical spin on Dr. Seuss’ "How The Grinch Stole Christmas," a new holiday comedy for adults.
From the producers: "Who's Holiday!," the new comedy Dr. Seuss does not want you to see! A wildly funny and heartfelt play as the mature Cindy Lou Who, recalls the first Christmas Eve she met the Grinch and the twisted turn of events her life has now taken.
Audience Note: Children under the age of 15 will not be permitted in the theatre.
Playwright Matthew Lombardo is the author of the Off-Broadway hit "Tea at Five," as well as a writer for NBC's "Another World," which earned him a Writer’s Guild Award for Outstanding Achievement. "Who's Holiday" premieres Off Broadway following a protracted legal battle over copyright infringement.
"Who's Holiday" features Lesli Margherita, an Olivier winner for "Zorro." She most recently appeared on Broadway as Mrs. Wormwood in "Matilda" - a role she originated when the production opened in 2013 - and Mona Kent in the 2015 Broadway production of "Dames at Sea." She is no stranger to commanding the stage alone following a string of acclaimed cabaret acts: "Rule Your Kingdom," "All Hail The Queen" and "Broad."
