This morning Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita, writer Matthew Lombardo, director Carl Andress and the cast of Who’s Holiday! met the press. The Christmas comedy in couplets, finds Lesli Margherita  playing “Cindy Lou Who” in the world premiere of The strictly limited 6 week engagement will be presented at the Westside Theatre Upstairs (407 W 43rd St, New York, NY 10036) beginning Monday, November 20th.

Lesli Margherita

The story involves 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 turn of events her life has taken for the past 40 years. Lombardo’s hysterically funny, wildly irreverent, and heartfelt parody is an absolute must-see for adult theatre-goers this holiday season!
