Who's Holiday! is a wildly funny and heartfelt adults-only comedy that tells the story of Cindy Lou Who as she recalls that Christmas Eve she first met the Grinch and the twisted turn of events her life has now taken.
"...By the time Garza leads the audience in a sing-along of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” we’re powerless to resist her schmaltzy spell. As an old man I used to know named Bob Caution used to say, “You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll kiss five bucks goodbye.” This one deserves to be a wintertime evergreen."
"...I think Ms Garza is an excellent performer who truly knows how to play the audience. In fact, I would have to say that she is much stronger than the actual play. She is playful, frisky and highly energetic. Watching this 65 minute production I am reminded of other little holiday shows that have been done on the stages of this building. I am juts not so sure that many suburban audience members will be willing to drive an hour plus to see a show that lasts for less than the drive. If you are going to head down to Theater Wit, might I suggest that you make the evening a full one by enjoying a dinner at Kubo , across the street, where the Filipino menu will excite and thrill you. It will also make the drive worthwhile."
"...If you're looking for an alternative to the typical holiday fare, look no further than this very funny, often poignant little vest pocket production. It's passionately performed by one of Chicago's comedic geniuses and carefully guided with panache and brought to life by an excellent, committed director. After a touching sing-along with Cindy Lou, audiences will leave the theatre with a glow in their hearts that, like the Grinch, will have grown three sizes."
"...It’s fun, it’s unexpected, and will kick off your holiday merrymaking from the moment you walk in to the melodious crooning of Frosty the Pervert. Take a break from stressing over your secret Santa, year-end goals or whatever. Stuff their stockings with tickets to Who’s Holiday. Theater Wit also has a special holiday cocktail menu including a chocolate-infused treat called Cindy Lou’s Little Helper. It is sure to warm the cockles of your heart before enjoying the show."
"...Garza's performance here, workshopped with and enhanced by talented director Christopher Pazdernik, is what makes the play work as well as it does, though the visual elements of the production are also outstanding. Angela Weber Miller's scenic design plunks us down in a battered trailer on snowy, mountainous terrain, and it is enhanced by Shelley Strasser's lighting. This is a one-woman show that is a feast for the eyes. Even if it succumbs a bit to an inconsistent tone, there is more than enough fun to be had here."
"...Remember that year when Whoville showed the true meaning of Christmas? When the Grinch's heart grew three sizes and learned Christmas was so much more than material things? You probably also remember the small little Who-girl mistaking the Grinch for Santa Claus then. Maybe you've asked yourself, whatever happened to Miss Cindy Lou Who? Did she end up happily ever after like you'd expect? Here in Who's Holiday, we see what happened after that fateful Christmas Day."
