The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons is an infectious delight as Elwood P. Dowd, a genial barfly with an invisible bunny buddy, in out director Scott Ellis’s comely revival of Mary Chase’s 1944 comedy. Parsons is a pro, more at ease than he was in The Normal Heart, but Jessica Hecht — lesbian Susan on Friends! — really knocks the dust off this chestnut as Elwood’s unraveling sister, who hopes that an asylum can make her brother “normal.”
Studio 54, through August 5.
