NEW YORK (AP) — Jim Parsons seems to have gotten a big bang out of Broadway and wants to return.

The star of "The Big Bang Theory" on CBS is set to star this summer in a Roundabout Theatre Company revival of the Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy "Harvey" by Mary Chase.

Performances of "Harvey" will begin May 18 at Studio 54 with an opening set for June 14. It runs through Aug. 5.

A two-time Emmy winner, Parsons made his Broadway debut in Larry Kramer's play "The Normal Heart" earlier this year.

He'll be joined in "Harvey" by Jessica Hecht and Charles Kimbrough. The play is about a man who gets into trouble over his friendship with a 6-foot-tall, invisible white rabbit named Harvey.
