    What the popular press said...

    "Handled with care, as it has been in this Roundabout Theater Company production, this winsome comedy about a lovable eccentric can cast a satisfying spell."
    Charles Isherwood for NY Times

    "As a gentle ode to acceptance and nonconformity, “Harvey” is enjoyable — no more, no less."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

    "This tale of a man and his invisible giant rabbit is defiantly, almost aggressively wholesome and gentle. That alone makes it distinctive and, ultimately, likable."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "A hell of a lot of fun."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "Charmingly insightful production."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "Harder heads than mine may find 'Harvey' to be a trifle sappy in sentiment, but I find it endearing, especially when the comedy is served so well by Ellis and his excellent actors."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "The gentle farce provides an ideal vehicle for the gifted Jim Parsons. ... 'Harvey' is a sweet treat."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "Jim Parsons aims to charm the pants off us by giving Elwood P. Dowd an air of sweet serenity. But the vacancy behind his bland facial expressions has a chilling effect."
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
