Harvey

On Stage September 24- October 4, 2014

 

Harvey, a whimsical fantasy about a man’s six-foot imaginary rabbit pal, is a likeable farce that's also an allegory about tolerance. Elwood P. Dowd is a wealthy dreamer whose sunny philosophy and laid-back personality are enjoyed by most of his fellow citizens. That is, until Elwood begins claiming that he sees a "pooka" (a mischievous Irish spirit), which has taken the form of a man-sized bunny named Harvey. Although everyone is certain that Elwood has finally lost his mind, Harvey's presence begins to have magically positive effects on the townsfolk--with the exception of Elwood's own sister. A snooty socialite, Veta is determined to marry off her daughter to somebody equally rich, and Elwood's lunacy is interfering. When Veta attempts to have Elwood committed to an insane asylum, however, the result is that she is accidentally admitted instead of her brother. Then the institution's director begins seeing Harvey too. In less than twenty-four hours, the lives of several people are drastically changed . . . .for the better.


Harvey was a smash hit (and a Pulitzer Prize winner) on Broadway and was then adapted into a famous James Stewart film. Two years ago a popular Broadway revival starred Jim Parsons (from The Big Bang Theory) as Elwood P. Dowd.
