This spring, Off-Broadway's acclaimed DR2 Kids Theatre (Daryl Roth, Producer) continues its partnership with Theatreworks USA (Barbara Pasternack, Artistic Director; Ken Arthur, Producing Director) -- the nation's leading not-for-profit professional theatre for young audiences -- to present "Rabbit Season" at the DR2 Kids Theatre.
"Rabbit Season" features celebrated live stage productions for families at Off-Broadway's DR2 Theatre, located in the heart of Union Square at 103 East 15th Street.
