A Comedy with A Twist of Rhyme
by Matthew Lombardo
Running length: 75 minutes (no intermission)
Rated R – not recommended for 18 and under
Although inspired by the Dr. Seuss classic, “How The Grinch Stole Christmas”, Who’s Holiday is NOT a family show. This is an adults-only event not for the faint of heart. Leave the kids, and those easily offended, at home.
You last saw her with the Grinch when she was just two
But ever wonder what happened to Cindy Lou Who?
It’s 40 years later – come see the results
In a holiday show that is just for adults!
“A raunchy riff on Dr. Seuss’s yuletide tale” – The New York Times
If your fond childhood memories include Dr. Seuss
The Grinch, his dog Max, and a ‘ville filled with Whos
Then you’ll love this sequel from 40 years hence
Though if you’re a Grinch, too, you might take offense.
The new play Who’s Holiday! by Matthew Lombardo
Is strictly R-rated, so don’t bring your kiddo
Yet if your mind’s open and you trust rave reviews
This Off-Broadway treat will come as good news!
How the Grinch Stole Christmas is the source of this send-up
But you’ll never guess how this parody ends up
WHO’S HOLIDAY! is a wildly funny and heartfelt adults-only comedy that tells the story of Cindy Lou Who as she recalls that fateful Christmas Eve when she first met the Grinch…and what happened next! The little tyke has become a bottle-blonde adult who spends her days in a trailer atop Mount Crumpit. Only those with a naughty sense of humor will be ready for this holiday offering that dirties up Christmas while ultimately reveling in its spirit.
You’ve seen her as Patty Andrews in “Sisters of Swing”, as Red Girl in “Shout! The Mod Musical”, as the Adjectives Girl in “Schoolhouse Rock Live!”, as Treitel in “The MeshugaNutcracker!”, as Frankie Marks in her award winning take in “Thanks for Playing…The Game Show Show”, and as the host of every sing-along at 3Below Theaters and The Retro Dome. Now, see producer/playwright/performer Shannon Guggenheim in this hilarious and delightfully naughty one-woman show where she’ll sing, dance, and rhyme her way through the holidays.
