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.

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!
