We have a real love for bunnies here at The Sweet London Life. The furry little friends are everyone’s favourites when it comes to the Easter celebrations and so we decided to compile a list of our five favourite shows that feature the cute and cuddly critters.
Spamalot – Who could possibly forget the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog, who successfully defends the cave against the onslaught of King Arthur and his Knights in this hilarious musical based on Monty Python’s The Holy Grail.
Urinetown – The song “Don’t be the Bunny” doesn’t actually feature a rabbit but during the most recent London production-directed by Jamie Lloyd – the fictitious bunny even had its own twitter account, so popular was the idea of the fluffy little fellow.
Legally Blonde –Poor old Elle Woods is tricked into going to a party dressed as a playboy bunny by her love rival Vivienne in the musical, which famously starred Sheridan Smith in the original London cast.
Harvey – Ok, you never actually see this one but you have to believe that the six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka exists in this wonderful play, which was most recently staged at the Theatre Royal Haymarket and starred Maureen Lipman and James Dreyfus.
Wonderland – Currently touring the UK and boasting an all-star cast, this musical by Frank Wildthorn is a contemporary version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It features a 40-year old Alice, who follows the white rabbit down the rabbit hole and on to some surprising adventures.
