Time Out says

Welcome the Year of the Rabbit with a performance of "Hao Bang-ah, Rabbit!" at Flushing Town Hall Theater on Sunday, January 29. ("Hao Bang Ah!" is a common Chinese expression meaning "Great!" or "Well done!")

Each year, Chinese Theatre Works celebrates the Lunar New Year season with an original “budaixi,” which is a traditional Chinese glove-puppet production that features the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac. This year’s show stars the Rabbit, who will preside over a jolly selection of wild puppet skits, dances, popular songs, and well-known Chinese sayings that celebrate the wit and wisdom of the zodiac animals.

After the matinee shows, children can stick around for hands-on workshops.
