    ‘Who’s Holiday!’ Is a Raunchy Riff on Dr. Seuss’s Yuletide Tale

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    December 4, 2017:

    The playwright Matthew Lombardo likes tough-talking, husky-voiced divas who barrel through life and stage in a blur of campy drama. In his Broadway debut, 2010’s “Looped,” Valerie Harper portrayed the grande dame of the stage Tallulah Bankhead. The following year’s pulpy “High”starred Kathleen Turner as a tough-love nun trying to help drug addicts; a scene in which Ms. Turner calmed down a raving man who had stripped naked remains branded in my memory.

    Now, Mr. Lombardo has added Cindy Lou to his gallery. Cindy Lou who? Well, Cindy Lou Who. Last seen as a onesie-wearing 2-year-old in Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!,” our heroine (Lesli Margherita) is all grown up and ready to puff on a bong in the R-rated Off Broadway solo comedy “Who’s Holiday!”

    The little tyke has become a bottle-blonde adult — Ms. Margherita’s wig, by Charles G. Lapointe, is a roots-showing relative of whatever lived on Elizabeth Berkley’s head in “Showgirls” — who spends her days in a trailer appointed with Airstream functionality and seasonal kitsch by the set designer David Gallo.
