Maggie RoswellBunny Bunny is a remembrance by Alan Zweibel, an SNL writer with whom Radner had a long-term flirtatious and affectionate friend-ship. Stories on Stage is mounting a reading Saturday starring Maggie Roswell, an actress who was once approached to be Radners replacement on SNL, but declined because my agent said that shows going nowhere.
Roswell is best known for her work on The Simpsons, where she voices among other roles Maude Flanders.
In the last years of her life, Radner created a system of support groups for cancer patients and their families, and proceeds from Bunny Bunny will go to Colorados Cancer Support Community, previously Gildas Club. The show plays Su Teatro @ the Denver Civic Theatre, 721 Santa Fe Drive, at 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 to $25; for more information, log on to www.storiesonstage.org.
