Description: 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, interactive 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.
Venue Description: Built in 2002, the DR2 Theatre is located in Union Square, the newest addition to the Off-Broadway scene.
