Bunny, The Elf is in all of us. The dreams we dared to dream as children get reasoned out of us as reality and responsibility 'grows us up'. The criticism of 'get a real job' that most artists/entertainers hear often is all too relate-able. As if making people smile wasn't a real job. What a gift it is to make a living as an entertainer. Getting paid to make people smile-IS AN IMPORTANT JOB. This is why it's always a huge accomplishment when an artists gets a gig lasting longer than a day or a week. Bunny got to be Bunny for a whole season. She IS a talented actress, singer, and professional creator of smiles. What wonderful poetic justice to watch Bunny's evolution through her show to the 'A-HA!' end. You gotta watch it to find out! ... full review

The character of Bunny The Elf is based on Christi's early career in New York City where she worked at F.A.O. Schwarz portraying a real-life Christmas Elf among a few other colorful characters. This eventually led to Bunny(whose government name is name Roberta Aires) appearing in her own Youtube Channel before making her way onstage to this years Hollywood Fringe Festival. Our story follows sweet naive Bunny as she seeks out the perfect career that is a match for enthusiastic and eccentric personality. Unfortunately, she doesn't have a lot on her resume, having spent the last ten years as what she calls a "musical theater audition-er," much to her chagrin.... full review
MATTHEW MARTIN certified reviewer June 20, 2019
OMG! I loved this show! I am a huge fan of Christmas films and the season itself, and this show delivered 100%. From the first moment you meet our main character, the audience is in love with her. This show takes us on such a fun ride through the eyes of such a great character. We believe her naivete and at the same time feel for her when things don't line up for her. We cheer for her. We cry for her. Christi has created one of the funnest, most endearing characters you'll see at Fringe this year. The writing is so tight and fun, with some of the best easter eggs and homages. If you love Christmas, you will love this show!! MUST SEE!!... full review

A surrealist meditation on working retail during the holiday season.... full review
APRIL WISH certified reviewer June 21, 2019
This show delivers on everything you would want in a holiday story ...and I so appreciated getting all those warm fuzzy feelings off-season. It was fun and optimistic. Christi’s sincerity and enthusiasm shines through this character and it would be impossible not to fall in love with her. Despite there being an overall cheery sheen, the writer does not shy away from bigger themes such as sexual harassment and the age-old Christmas lesson of gratitude. ... full review

MONIQUE LEBLEU certified reviewer June 22, 2019
Ever ready and festively dressed (try not to covet those shoes,) Bunny embarks to work for “one of the best humans ever!”– a dream come true. Endlessly sparkling and positive, she's loaded with anecdotes on the joys (and perils) of spreading holiday cheer, motivating in “Elf” meetings (“Elfin' Rocks!”), encouraging (and corraling) customers, and generally elfing around.... full review
