A great play! Gordon Goodman's fine performance brought John Barrymore back to life, giving me a chance to "meet" him for the very first time. A fond and humorous - and yes, melancholy - tribute to an aging Hollywood legend attempting to halt a...continued

Best play I've seen all year, hands down. You'll know what I mean when you see it. Mr Goodman takes acting to a whole new level. Riveting stuff.

BARRYMORE is sheer perfection. I had high expectations given the highly successful production history of director, Janet Miller, but this show went above and beyond. Gordon Goodman takes us on a journey that we don't want to leave. He is poignant,...continued

Very good performance and writing. Always a bit of trepidation at seeing another one-person bio piece, esp. of a known heavy drinker. But, this one worked very well - some insights and humor and a very handsome star!

The best one-person show I've seen in a long time. Gordon Goodman becomes John Barrymore in every sense. You will reach a great understanding of this legendary actor and have some good laughs on the way.

Gordon Goodman as Barrymore was fantastic. A fully realized and touching, funny portrayal of John Barrymore. The set was wonderful and the off stage actor as well. Bravo!

Parking is free and easy - the lot is just steps North of the theatre.
Have dinner and drinks before or after the show at the Rosewood Tavern!
The restrooms on site are for elementary school kids, so watch out when you go to sit down...it's much...continued
