Mary Chase’s long-running Broadway play won a Pulitzer Prize in 1945, beating a more serious contender, “The Glass Menagerie.” The movie version of the whimsical fantasy starring James Stewart was a great success too. Elwood P. Dowd (just an ordinary guy) and Harvey (a giant invisible rabbit) are best buddies. Some think Elwood has had one drink too many or needs to be committed to a mental hospital. Maybe he’s just a harebrained philosopher. Delightful Josephine Hull, as Dowd’s high-strung sister, won an Oscar. (1950) 104 MIN. NR (UNIVERSAL)

August 9 - Thompson Square

About Lindsay Ell:
Named one of The Huffington Post’s “Top Country Artists to Watch in 2016, Lindsay Ell is a triple threat:  accomplished musician, unique vocalist and songwriter.  The 27-year-old Calgary native learned to play guitar while traveling with her father to country-bluegrass camps as a young girl.  Ell honed her craft as a musical stylist and songwriter after being discovered by BTO and The Guess Who’s Randy Bachman (“American Woman” / “Taking Care of Business”) who discovered her at the age of 13.  The multi-instrumentalist was soon opening for the likes of Luke Bryan, Buddy Guy, The Band Perry and Keith Urban. Ell received critical acclaim for her singles “Trippin’ On Us,” “Shut Me Up” and “By The Way,” including being named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 Artists You Need to Know” and one of CMT’s Next Women of Country. A 2016 CMT Music Award and Canadian Country Music Award nominee, Ell most recently wowed audiences from coast-to-coast as part of the 2016 CMT Next Women of Country Tour. For more information visit: http://www.LindsayEll.com   

More Info: 
Performances begin at 8:30pm and are open to the public. Seating at the Porch will be on a first-come first-served basis. Others will be able to hear from the perimeter of the Southwest Porch. Fans can also watch each of the shows live on the Opry’s Facebook page.
