Based on the children's novel by Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit will run through Jan. 27, 2013. It will be followed by Bunnicula, which features a book by Tony Award nominee Charles Busch, music by Sam Davis and lyrics by Drama Desk nominee Mark Waldrop. Performances are scheduled for Feb. 8-April 14, 2013.
The three-person cast of Velveteen Rabbit features Stanek ( Indescretions, ...Forum, Little Women), Curcuru (reprising his role from the recent national tour of Velveteen Rabbit) and Kristin Parker ( Pinkalicious) in a variety of roles. Del Aguila wrote and directs the piece.
The production features scenic design by Lake Simmons and costume design by Patrick Johnson.
According to the creators, " The Velveteen Rabbit is a joyous testament to the eternal power of a child's imagination. This classic tale comes to life for a whole new generation in a wonder-filled production created by Kevin Del Aguila. With a little bit of nursery magic (and a whole lot of audience participation), three actors and their simple props transform into a wise old rocking horse, a cavalcade of mechanical playthings, a kind-hearted fairy and, of course, a stuffed rabbit who is transformed by the love of a young boy."
