The Adventure Continues

Culture Shock.

Harvey Evans is Broadway royalty. From his debut in 1957 as a Fosse dancer in NEW GIRL IN TOWN and first replacement as Tulsa in GYPSY to playing a Jet in the movie of WEST SIDE STORY, creating the role of Young Buddy in FOLLIES and starring in National Tours of BARNUM and LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, Harvey has worked with everyone from the Golden Age of musical theatre.
He has been a dear friend and, I'm thrilled to say, an avid fan ever since I arrived in New York but I confess I was a little apprehensive about his seeing DOLLY! as he played Barnaby Tucker opposite Carol Channing, Betty Grable, Bibi Osterwald and Eve Arden, and later played Horace Vandergelder with Pamela Myers regionally.
Happily, he was his usual enthusiastic self, claiming we have made things work in this production that never worked before!
One of the most adored people in the business.
