Is Who's Holiday! eyeing a Broadway bow?
Following a second victory for playwright Matthew Lombardo in a legal dispute with Dr. Seuss Enterprises L.P., the off-Broadway solo show Who's Holiday! is now eyeing a limited Broadway engagement for the 2018 Holiday season, according to producer Ben Feldman. The play-in-rhyming-couplets 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 the fated night when she first met the Grinch, and the strange turn of events her life has taken for the past 40 years. After the cancellation of the 2016 world premiere at New World Stages, starring Tony Award nominee Jennifer Simard, Who's Holiday! finally debuted at the Westside Theatre in late 2017, with Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita as Cindy Lou Who.
