Lesli Margherita to Star in World Premiere of Who's Holiday!
The new comedy about Cindy Lou Who will make it to New York this fall.
Broadway favorite Lesli Margherita will star as Cindy Lou Who in the world premiere of Matthew Lombardo's Who's Holiday! this fall at the Westside Theatre Upstairs. Directed by Carl Andress, the six-week engagement will take place November 20-December 31.
Described as a Christmas comedy in couplets, Who's Holiday! follows a middle-aged Cindy Lou Who, now residing in a beaten-down trailer in the snowy hills of Mount Crumpit. As she prepares to host a Christmas Eve party for her friends, she recalls from her own perspective that fated night when she first met the Grinch and the strange course her life has taken for the past 40 years.
The show's design team will include David Gallo (sets), Ken Billington (lighting), Jess Goldstein (costumes), Bart Fasbender (sound), and Charles LaPointe (wigs).
The play was originally scheduled to be produced in 2016, but the production was postponed due to legal issues that have now been resolved.
