Here's how the evening is described: "David Alan Thornton has escaped and he's at it again! He returns to 54 Below for David Alan Thornton Vs. the Bunny Suicides — an evening of fun, feelings, fruity love stories, robots with identity crises, determined hippopotamuses (yes, it's the correct plural), and BUNNY SUICIDES! With the cooperation of internationally-renowned comic-book artist Andy Riley and featuring an all-star cast, the night and the music are sure to make you laugh, sigh, snort, cry, and feel darn good."
Thornton is a singer-songwriter and composer. His work has been heard at Rockwood Music Hall, The Triad, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, the Bitter End, the Laurie Beechman Theatre and 54 Below. His productions include the David Alan Thornton Versus series, his self-released album "Spokedog" and Little Bitters.
