The Broadway revival of Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Harvey begins previews on May 18. Starring two-time Emmy winner Jim Parsons and Tony nominee Jessica Hecht, Harvey will officially open on June 14 at Studio 54. Directed by Scott Ellis, the Roundabout Theatre Company production will play a limited engagement through August 5.
Harvey tells the tale of Elwood P. Dowd (Parsons), an eccentric man with an unusual best friend—a six-foot-tall rabbit named Harvey. Harvey is invisible to everyone except Elwood, much to the frustration of his sister, Veta (Hecht). When Veta takes Elwood to the local sanitarium to save their family’s reputation, doctors mistakenly commit Veta instead. As Harvey and Elwood slip out of the hospital unbothered, the town erupts into a hilarious whirlwind of confusion and chaos as the town tries to catch Elwood and his invisible rabbit.
In addition to Parsons and Hecht, Harvey stars Charles Kimbrough, Larry Bryggman, Carol Kane, Peter Benson, Morgan Spector, Holley Fain, Angela Paton, Rich Sommer and Tracee Chimo. Get your tickets to this new revival today!
