Forget Halloween Horror Nights and "Saw IV." The scariest thing you can see this fall is a giant rabbit prophesying the end of the world. Boston's American Repertory Theatre is bringing the cult film "Donnie Darko," in which a troubled teenager in the '80s experiences peculiar hallucinations, to the stage now through November 18.
Donnie Darko's just a regular guy discussing the '88 presidential election over dinner with his parents and wooing his first girlfriend when a giant rabbit begins appearing to him at night and telling him the world will end within a month. After the bunny saves him from being smashed by a jet engine which falls into his house, Donnie decides to listen. Here's what adapter-director Marcus Stern told Bostonist.com about his adaptation to the cult film:
What we're doing is a very faithful rendition of the film; it's a really great film and we're trying to bring that to the stage. We're not trying ot do some interpretation or take on the film, we're trying to honor this killer story, killer event.
