I'm agog with the news that ELINOR DONAHUE will be playing Mrs. Chumley in Judson Theatre Company's HARVEY! My NC friends know her as Andy's girlfriend Ellie on "The Andy Griffith Show", and Elinor is truly a TV icon: Emmy nom as Betty on "Father Knows Best" & other series regular roles like Miriam on "The Odd Couple" (Felix's girlfriend), Rebecca on "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman" (Dr. Quinn's sister) and even Chris Elliot's mom on "Get a Life". From "Star Trek" to "The Golden Girls" to "Friends" to "Cold Case", she's guested on practically every beloved TV show. On the big screen, her work spans from movies with Margaret O'Brien and Elizabeth Taylor in the 1940s and 50s to "Pretty Woman" and "Princess Diaries 2". So very honored to have this TV Land Legend Award winner coming to Pinehurst. Tix: JudsonTheatre.com.
As Executive Producer of Judson Theatre Company, I'm excited to announce our 2015 Season!
Our fourth season opens with Neil Simon’s comedy smash Plaza Suite, starring Eve Plumb (best known as “Jan” on The Brady Bunch). Laughter abounds in this portrait of three couples in the swinging 1960s occupying a suite at New York’s Plaza Hotel: a suburban couple who are revisiting their honeymoon suite in an attempt to rekindle the romance in their relationship; a much-married Hollywood producer who reunites with his childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, who has idolized him from afar over the years; and the parents of a nervous bride who’s locked herself in the bathroom with the wedding waiting downstairs. Time magazine declared the original Broadway production “An avalanche of hilarity!” and indeed, Plaza Suite is a clever comic meditation upon the effects of time upon love. Show dates: June 18-21.

In the fall, the laughter continues with the beloved Pulitzer Prize winning hit Harvey by Mary Chase. It’s the story of Elwood P. Dowd–one of the modern theatre’s most beloved characters. Charming and kind, Elwood has one quirk: an unwavering friendship with a 6’3 1/2″ invisible rabbit named Harvey! It’s a classic comic fantasy about losing your mind–and finding your real (and imaginary) true friends. Show dates: September 24-27.
