Bruce Nelson talks HARVEY at Everyman Theatre

By Gavin Witt | Posted in Interviews, Staff Blogs, WBJC Programs | Comments Off on Bruce Nelson talks HARVEY at Everyman Theatre

Local legend and longtime Everyman Theatre company member Bruce Nelson joined me to share his thoughts on playing the iconic role of Elwood Dowd in Mary Chase’s beloved, Pulitzer Prize-winning 1945 comedy, Harvey.

Made famous by the film starring Jimmy Stewart, and featuring an invisible (possibly imaginary) anthropomorphic rabbit, the play offers slapstick and hijinks a-plenty but–as Bruce notes–also offers more thoughtful, insightful, and poignant reflections to leaven the humor.

WBJC listeners and Baltimore audiences may know Gavin from his nearly 20 years as dramaturg and associate artistic director at Baltimore Center Stage (in which capacity he was a frequent guest on WBJC to talk about programs and events), or from regular appearances alongside Jonathan Palevsky at the Charles Theater for Cinema Sundays discussions. A director, dramaturg, producer, translator, and adaptor who also teaches on the theater faculty at Towson University, Gavin is a recent addition to the WBJC team and delighted to play this new role.
