Harvey

A benefit performance of this summer's smash hit has been added on August 5 at 7pm. Each ticket to this performance will support Education at Roundabout, which brings over 3,500 NYC public school students to matinees each season. A portion of the ticket will be a tax-deductible contribution.
 
Two-time Emmy® winner and Golden Globe Award® winner Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”, The Normal Heart), Tony® and Emmy Award nominee Charles Kimbrough (The Merchant of Venice) and Tony Award nominee Jessica Hecht (A View from the Bridge) return to Broadway in Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize–winning comedy, Harvey.  
 
Parsons stars as one of modern theatre’s most lovable characters, Elwood P. Dowd. Charming and kind, Elwood has only one character flaw: an unwavering friendship with a six-foot-tall, invisible rabbit named Harvey. In order to save the family’s reputation, Elwood’s sister, Veta (Jessica Hecht), takes him to the local sanitarium. But when Dr. William Chumley (Charles Kimbrough) mistakenly commits anxiety-ridden Veta instead of her brother, it sets off a hilarious whirlwind of confusion and chaos as everyone tries to catch a man and his invisible rabbit.
 
Tony and Emmy Award–nominee Scott Ellis (Roundabout’s Twelve Angry Men) directs this classic comedy about losing your mind and finding your real, and imaginary, true friends.
