Quit me if you’ve heard this 1: Bugs Bunny walks into a homosexual bar on New Year’s Eve, wanting for a hard carrot to gnaw on. Welcome to the Rabbit Hole, exactly where forest creatures’ darkest fantasies arrive to lifestyle. Harvey the bartender serves the horny hares a continuous stream of orange liquor and NC-17 rabbit puns, though Thumper, the resident porn star with an impenetrable Hispanic accent, teaches Bugs how to perform a runway, and newcomer Jack queries for appreciate in the club’s again space orgy.

The script throws an ACME crate whole of nuts crap at the partitions — from wacky seem outcomes and within jokes about Mel Blanc’s multiple voice roles, to self-conscious shoutouts to Michael Wanzie — and a minor of it (these as a phallic parody of a classic Chorus Line amount) manages to stick. Sadly, whilst Bugs is portrayed authentically as Jewish and non-binary, the rest of the figures are slapdash collections of poses and stereotypes without the need of actual personalities. The cast contains a couple sound singers, and they provide the smutty gags with gusto, but the glacially paced paper-skinny plot operates out of gas significantly less than midway by means of the hour jogging time (which is mercifully shorter than the 75 minutes advertised).

The festival is just finding started off and Down the Rabbit Gap is now a foremost contender for my the very least-favourite clearly show of the 12 months (or perhaps decade), but your mileage could change: it is obligatory for each Orlando Fringe Pageant to aspect a campy mess that gets an inexplicable hit, and this display may be it this yr. If Warner Bros and Disney sue this a single out of existence just before you get a chance to see it, count your blessings.
