About the show

This wildly irreverent solo show is a heartfelt holiday parody that looks at the life of a grown-up Cindy Lou Who. Starring Lesli Margherita ('Matilda The Musical').  More…

A middle-aged Cindy Lou Who, now residing in a beaten-down trailer in the snowy hills of Mount Crumpit, is about to host a Christmas Eve party for her friends. As she prepares, 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.

See it if you are a Dr. Seuss fan and know the Grinch Who Stole Christmas - better if you know Seuss' other work, too. A fun way to spend an hour.

Short and sweet, ok, not that sweet

She expertly milks the many double entendres and profane limerick-like rhymes, but this cabaret regular is equally comfortabl...

"Though the years haven't been kind to Cindy Lou...the booze-guzzling, cigarette sucking bleached blonde stays lovably upbeat...Margherita is a comical riot, shining with moxie-laden tastelessness and irreverence.
