SYNOPSIS & INFORMATION:
HARVEY is a Pulitzer Prize-winning American comedy, which was originally produced on Broadway in 1944 where it ran for four years. Immediately following its first successful Broadway run, HARVEY was made into a film starring Jimmy Stewart, and it has continued to be a favorite of many theatre-goers ever since. HARVEY will open on Friday, May 10th with performances continuing through Saturday, June 1st.
Many people, especially children, have imaginary friends. In fact, it is considered to be a sign of intelligence and creativity in children. But an adult with an imaginary friend or at least a friend that no one else can see is perhaps a bit unusual. Elwood P. Dowd has an imaginary friend named Harvey who happens to be a 6 foot three and half inch tall white rabbit. Elwood believes earnestly in the existence of his friend Harvey. Unfortunately, Harvey is creating quite a few problems for Elwood’s social climbing sister, Veta, and his niece, the unmarried Myrtle Mae. Veta attempts to have Elwood committed to the local sanitarium, but hilarity reigns as Elwood and Harvey disappear and Veta mistakenly becomes a patient!
