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.

An insult to dr. seuss

See it if You can tolerate a bad parody of Dr. Seuss. The rhymes are forced, the meter doesn't scan, and the biggest laughs are from foul language.

Don't see it if Love Dr. Seuss, because this desecrates the tradition of good rhymes and good meter.

Fluffy, Raunchy, High energy, Great (limited) singing, Campy

See it if you like the force-of-nature Lesli Margherita, strutting her stuff. Great singing (but few songs). Fun riff on Grinch...in rhyme. Good set.

Don't see it if you want more than silly entertainment. Or swears/drugs/alcohol/smoking/etc offend. Rhymes sh be crisper. Overuse old jokes (eg cheap seats)

Also Lesli Margherita is always worth seeing. She's a terrific entertainer.... Read more Read less

See it if You’re a fan of the Grinch cartoon and have a bit of a twisted sense of humor. If you like Tim Minchin’s work you’ll probably like this.

Don't see it if You’re easily offended or your childhood memories can’t take a joke or if you have no idea who The Grinch and Cindy Lou Who are.

Don't see it if You prefer more traditional Christmas shows. You don't like raunchy humor. You dislike parodies. You don't want changes to the Grinch story.

"This hourlong production’s point, which is to watch the brassy, very funny Ms. Margherita strut her stuff in the costume designer Jess Goldstein’s festive holiday get-up. 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.
