Interview of Charlie Tyler and Rita Corn
May 7, 2013 – Charlie Tyler and Rita Corn are appearing as the eccentric Elwood P. Dowd and his long suffering sister Vita Louise Simmons, in the delightful production of the much loved comedy Harvey, which is currently running at the Lemon Bay Playhouse in Englewood Florida. As Charlie mentions in his interview “Harvey” is the 6th longest running show in Broadway history. That is quite understandable because while it is funny, charming, and outrageous, it is also thought provoking, as it asks us to think about what is really important in life. Both Charlie and Rita discovered their love of theater/acting when they were very young and ironically both had to put off really indulging in their passion until they had lived otherwise productive lives. Listen to these charming and interesting people talk about the way they kept their love of theater alive until they could dive in, which to our delight, is what they are currently doing.
