Called a “raunchy riff on Dr. Seuss,” “Who’s Holiday” spotlights grown-up Cindy Lou Who, recalling that fateful Christmas Eve when she first met the Grinch and the twisted turn of events her life has since taken.

“We have a bit of history of finding those off-center, holiday shows that make us laugh,” said Kevin Moore, Human Race artistic director and founding director in a release. “I recall the naughty elf in ‘Santaland Diaries’ and the crazy residents of ‘A Tuna Christmas.’ ‘Who’s Holiday!’ continues this tradition. It is definitely an irreverent, ‘adults night out.’”

Cincinnati native and Wright State University graduate Alex Sunderhaus will portray Cindy Lou Who, prepping for a holiday party in her trailer just outside of Whoville. Sunderhaus previously appeared in the Human Race productions of “Sylvia,” “The House,” “One Slight Hitch” and “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.”

“Who’s Holiday!” is directed by Joe Deer, Human Race resident artist and Wright State artistic director. The artistic team includes costumer Zoe Still, scenic designer Scott J. Kimmins, lighting designer John Rensel, and sound designer Alexander Koker.
