One thing great about Grand Rapids is that we're never at a loss for great theater.  There are so many theater companies in town and so much talent available, that there is always something extraodinary on a stage.

The grandaddy of them all, Civic Theater, opens "Harvey" this Friday night and runs through January.

'Harvey' is a play about a quirky guy, Elwood P. Dowd, with an imaginary 6 foot, 3 1/2-inch-tall rabbit, Harvey, as his best friend.  It was originally produced on Broadway in 1944, winning the 1945 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and was made into a movie in 1950, starring Jimmy Stewart.

It really is a fun, funny play, good for the whole family.

It's easy to get tickets.  They run from $14 to $25, and are available at the box office, by calling 616-222-6650, ext.1, or 888-695-0888, and, on-line at www.grct.org
