What I liked

Overall this is a story of perseverance and fortitude/ Bunny reminds us that we will have doors closed in our face, but to not give up as you will find a place where you can be the most authentic version of yourself. Also, throughout this process, it is essential that no matter how frustrated we become with our station, we can always remember to be the spirit of Christmas to others, to treat everyone with love and kindness no matter their creed or background and be grateful for we have, and the importance of not forgetting about those less fortunate than ourselves.

Pedigo transforms into Bunny with such gusto, from the elf ears to the cotton candy scented perfume, while wearing the elf costume she absolutely embodies the character filled and infectious joy and excitement. You will walk away with a smile on your face an inspired to inspire others.

What I didn't like


My overall impression

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.
