Who wouldn't want to have a six-foot-tall invisible rabbit as a best friend? The idea seems perfectly reasonable to Elwood P. Dowd in the Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy play Harvey. Elwood is a nice enough fellow; he has a quiet life with his sister and niece, and bothers no one. Harvey, however, does bother quite a few people, including Elwood's family. Finally, they refuse to indulge Elwood's fantasy anymore and decide to have him committed. But things only go from bad to worse when Elwood and Harvey face down the medical staff. 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays, 2:30 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Sundays. Through May 9. For information, call 713-220-5700 or visit www.alleytheatre.org. $21 to $75.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: April 21. Continues through May 9, 2010
