University Players to Stage “Harvey” on Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus
Teaneck, NJ (October 17, 2007) – Fairleigh Dickinson University’s University Players will stage the theater classic, “Harvey,” at FDU’s Metropolitan Campus Thursday, November 8, and Friday, November 9, at 8 p.m. in the Ratsch Theater in University Hall. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play is perhaps best known for its 1950 film adaptation starring James Stewart.
This stage and film favorite is the story of Elwood P. Dowd who has (he says) an invisible friend resembling a 6-foot rabbit named Harvey. When Elwood’s sister decides to commit him to a mental institution, a comedy of errors ensues, romance blooms and a family is brought together.
James Stewart played Dowd in the London production and on film. Art Carney of “The Honeymooners” and Harry Anderson of “Night Court” played the role in television specials.
Directing is Professor James Rana. Tickets are $8 for the general public and $3 for seniors and children under 12. For further information, contact the University Players at 201-692-7155.
