Harvey—Love Street Playhouse—Woodland, WA

Wrestling with Reality

The classic comedy, Harvey, by Mary Chase, directed by J. Christopher Cleveland and produced by Melinda Leuthold, is playing through April 21st.   The theatre is located at 126 Love St. in Woodland (only a few minutes from I-5).  For ticket and season information go to www.lovestreetplayhouse.com 

Harvey is a sweet gem from the 40’s and starred Frank Fay on Broadway.  It has been a film with James Stewart and on TV with Art Carney.  It has played constantly at high schools and community theatres ever since then.  This is always a crowd-pleaser and last night’s fans were no exception.  Another jewel that Love St. might consider from the same author is Mrs. McThing which starred Helen Hayes, a sort of prelude to Mary Poppins.
