Critical Acclaim for Who’s Holiday:
“In Matthew Lombardo’s one-woman show, Cindy Lou Who is all grown up — and she isn’t quite the adorable child you remember from Dr. Seuss’s classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Chronicling the years that have passed since Cindy caught the Grinch in her living room, Lombardo’s seventy-minute comedy, spoken entirely in rhyming couplets, is a comic tour de force.” —Carey Purcell, The Village Voice

“… a comical riot, shining with moxie-laden tastelessness and irreverence. [Cindy Lou] engages front row audience members, sings with gutsy verve and even raps a bit. After an hour of lunacy, a sweet, sentiment ending is added, sending audience members off with a warm smile and probably exhausted from laughter.” —Michael Dale, Broadway WorldWho's Holiday Show Image
