WaterTower Theatre’s third show of the season is set to run from Feb. 6 to Feb. 23. You can catch Harvey on the Terry Martin Main Stage at the Addison Theatre Centre.
“This Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Mary Chase follows Elwood P. Dowd – a polite man with a very strange best friend,” according to its website. “Elwood’s sister, Veta, is concerned her brother’s friend will interfere with her life as a socialite, and who can blame her? Elwood’s friend is a six-foot, three-and-one-half- inch invisible rabbit named Harvey. To avoid future embarrassment, Veta attempts to have Elwood committed, but after her frantic recount of her brother’s condition, she finds herself mistakenly committed instead. The truth quickly reveals itself, and the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. When Elwood shows up at the sanitarium looking for his long lost friend Harvey, it seems that the mild-mannered Elwood’s delusion has had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors, which leads Veta to realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.”
Harvey is being directed by Dick Monday, with Jeremiah Johnson as Elwood P. Dowd, Felicia Bertch as Veta Simmons, Kennedy O’Kelley as Myrtle Mae Simmons, Kim Titus as Dr. Chumley, Laura Yancey as Betty Chumley, Mary Tiner as Ethel Chauvenet, Carson D. Wright as Dr. Sanderson, Jo-Jo Steine as Nurse Kelly, Tyler Cochran as Wilson, Bradley Campbell as Judge Gaffney, and Mark Quach as E. J. Lofgren.
