Playwright Mary Chase won a Pulitzer Prize for Harvey, her enduring comedy about a gentle cocktail-consumer named Elwood P. Dowd, his domineering and society-loving sister Veta, the doctors at a nearby sanitarium and, of course, Elwood's best friend, a giant invisible rabbit named Harvey. To save her family from embarrassment, Veta tries to have Elwood committed, but things don't go exactly according to plan and Veta gets committed instead. A long-running Broadway hit, Harvey was adapted into an Oscar-winning 1950 movie starring Jimmy Stewart. Learn More

Red was a fantastic experience. This was my first trip to Playhouse in the Park, and the space was great. The theatre itself felt intimate, though I'm sure there were several hundred seats - it didn't seem there was a bad seat in the house. The box office staff allowed us to select our seats, and we chose seats in the third row, on the side - our seats were perfect. The play itself was fantastic. The performance drew me in, and kept me engaged for the entire 90-minute show. The character who played Mark Rothko was exceptionally notable - he was intense, self-focused (yet ironically unable to step out of his narcissistic world), and sometimes funny (both when the character meant to be and when he didn't). The other character (Ken), was great to watch - he served as Rothko's personal canvas, with his impressionable, eager, but internally dark and conflicted nature. The end of the play was very fitting; and the whole show was simultaneously entertaining, ironic, and interesting enough to talk about for hours afterward.
