Synopsis by Sarah Ing
Rabbit Ears productions lovingly embraces the classic story of the underdog in Rabbit Ears: John Henry. By using well-known actors and musicians as narrators, Rabbit Ears makes this age-old tale accessible and relevant. Denzel Washington narrates, but the real star is the music of guitarist B.B. King. John Henry represents a great part of American heritage, the unstoppable pioneer and headstrong everyman. King's score becomes part of the struggle as the story of man against machine unfolds. This program format has been lauded by critics and parents alike for its honest and tender renditions. Rabbit Ears: John Henry is recommended for children ages three to eight.
