Miz Cracker said, “I’m thrilled to join Tuckshop for Who’s Holiday this winter. What an honor 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!”
Director Kirk Jameson said, “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!”
