ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Replete with vivid personalities, a dark family secret, an inheritance plot, eerie magical realism, and an omnipresent yet unseen title character, “Harvey” ingeniously takes ingredients for gothic horror and creates a robust charismatic comedy. The snappy dialogue, well-earned tantrums, and near-slapstick physicality provide entertainment for all ages, and the Little Theatre of Alexandria puts on a delightful rendition of this Pulitzer Prize-winning classic.

With an ovation-worthy set designed by Matt Liptak and painstakingly appointed by Jocelyn Steiner, LTA’s “Harvey” treats audiences to Andy Izquierdo’s luminous and pitch-perfect Elwood P. Dowd as he blithely confounds the machinations of scheming relations and cynical psychiatric staff. Rachael Hubbard’s turn as Elwood’s perpetually vexed sister, Veta Louise, is both hilarious and affecting as she stumbles towards redemption through misery of her own maintaining. She’s partnered with her deliciously dislikable daughter, Myrtle Mae, played with panache by Catherine Gilbert. Aided by family attorney, Judge Gaffney, presented by the ever-excellent Tony Gilbert, their attempt to commit Elwood sets off a mad comedy of errors at the psychiatric hospital.
