BUNNY BUNNY: GILDA RADNER, A SORT OF LOVE STORY
Written by Alan Zweibel
Directed by Warner Crocker
EXTENDED BY POPULAR DEMAND THRU APRIL 15!
February 7 - April 15, 2018
Mercury Main Stage

Gilda Radner was one of the great comic geniuses of the 20th century. Her life-long friend and comedy writer Alan Zweibel has written this loving tribute to Gilda. Bunny Bunny is based on their curious bond, a relationship that was always emotional but never physical. Comic and heartbreaking, this play follows these two overgrown kids as they ride bumper-car lives right up to Radner’s death from ovarian cancer. Their loyalty and love glows through every scene.
