Falcon Theatre is proud to present "Bunny Bunny – Gilda Radner: A Sort of Romantic Comedy," written by Alan Zweibel, directed by Dimitri Toscas,the fourth production of the Falcon Theatre’s 2013-2014 Subscription Season. "Bunny Bunny" features Brendan Hunt as 'Alan', Erin Pineda as 'Gilda' and Tom Fonss as 'Everyone Else', an ensemble of lively characters.

Beginning with the first time they met behind a potted tree in an early "Saturday Night Live" meeting, "Bunny Bunny" is a whirlwind personal journey through the fourteen-year friendship of writer Alan Zweibel and comedienne Gilda Radner. The play pulls us through a memory patchwork of Alan’s hilarious and heartbreaking adventures with his dear Gilda, as their insecurities and demons are eased by their shared talent for laughter.

Zweibel, an original Saturday Night Live writer who the New York Times says has “earned a place in the pantheon of American pop culture,” has won multiple Emmy, Writers Guild of America, and TV Critics awards for his work in television, which also includes "It’s Garry Shandling’s Show" (which he co-created and produced), PBS’s "Great Performances" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm." A frequent guest on talk shows such as "Late Show With David Letterman," "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and NPR, Alan’s theatrical contributions include his collaboration with Billy Crystal on the Tony Award winning play "700 Sundays," Martin Short’s Broadway hit "Fame Becomes Me," and the Off-Broadway play "Bunny Bunny – Gilda Radner: A Sort of Romantic Comedy" which he adapted from his best-selling book.
