The full creative team has been announced for the European debut of of Who’s Holiday by Matthew Lombardo, which will run at the Southwark Playhouse from the 7th December until the 7th January 2023.
Who’s Holiday 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…
This adults-only comedy is set to star Drag Race US icon Miz Cracker. Miz is a New York City drag queen—and a writer, foodie and comedienne. She launched her drag career in 2011 while participating in marches for marriage equality in Times Square. She went on to compete in RuPaul’s Drag Race Season Ten, landing a spot in the top five and becoming a fan favourite. She later appeared in RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season Five, landing a spot in the top three.
Directed by Kirk Jameson, Who’s Holiday will be designed by Justin Williams, with lighting design by Kieron Johnson, and with sound design and composition by Mwen. The stage management team will consist of Daisy Francis-Bryden (SM) and Ned Lay (Production Manager).
Miz Cracker said, “I’m thrilled to join Tuckshop for Who’s Holiday this winter. What an honour to make my London acting debut with such a fun concept and company. And what a joy to return to the UK, where I feel so much love every time I visit! I hope everyone has a chance to join us for some big laughs.”
Meanwhile, director Kirk Jameson commented: “I’ve admired the creativity and tenacity of Tuckshop for a number of years now and have been keen to find the right kind of project we might collaborate on. Chris’ frankly brilliant idea to combine the nostalgia of Dr Seuss with the global phenomenon that is Drag Race on the U.K. premiere of this brilliant play, was simply impossible to resist. I can’t wait to get started!”
