New in 2012 Roundabout presents a revival of the Pulitzer-winning comedy, starring Jim Parsons (an Emmy and Golden Globe winner for "The Big Bang Theory") as an eccentric man with a special friend - a 6-foot-tall white rabbit named Harvey. Closes August 5th.
The Broadway production of Harvey closed August 5, 2012. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.
Joining Jim Parsons in the cast will be Jessica Hecht, who co-starred with Scarlett Johansson and Liev Schrieber in the 2010 Broadway production of "A View From The Bridge," and Charles Kimbrough, the stage and film veteran best known for his Emmy-nominated performance as anchorman Jim Dial on "Murphy Brown."
Written by Mary Chase and first produced in 1944, "Harvey" ran on Broadway for more than 4 years. The 1950 film adaptation starred James Stewart, who received an Oscar-nomination for his performance as the affable Elwood P. Dowd.
Carol Kane, a two-time Emmy-winner for "Taxi," is featured in these clips, along with Jim Parsons, Jessica Hecht, and Charles Kimbrough:
What's the Roundabout? One of the great nonprofit dreadnoughts of the New York theater scene, the Roundabout has three Broadway venues and an Off-Broadway stage in midtown. Prominent artists are usually engaged, significant work is usually done, and even at the smallest of the theaters, the work has the uniform quality that one would expect from such a large and prominent shop.
