        Sounds like he would have fit in nicely here!

      Yeah, it’s definitely out there, plot wise. I read the play years ago, but have never seen it staged. I’m hoping I get a chance to catch this production.

    A little weird to have a family-friendly, “warm and fuzzy” tie-in with a not-family-friendly play… but I guess it’s a way for the theater and the pony-rental company to get some additional exposure/press.

      exactly my thought haha

      Agreed!

  • pcat

    I don’t care about the production. I just want to pet a pony.

    I worked for a bit at a miniature horse farm when I was in high school. They were cantankerous little things… Awfully cute though, when they weren’t trying to nip me.

    We had a pony named Freddy growing up and he could be mean at times.
