Veteran actor-writer David Graham Richmond takes on the persona of famed star of stage and screen John Barrymore for this one-man show, tracing the legend's difficult declining years. Barrymore, the paternal grandfather of actress Drew, had a hugely successful career in the 1910s and '20s, as a leading man in more than 60 films, as well as a triumphant run on Broadway as Hamlet
and other Shakespearean roles. But his personal life was a disaster, and later in his life he was dogged by alcoholism and money problems, which forced him to sign on for a number of degrading roles. Even in depicting his struggles, though, Goodnight, Mr. Barrymore
sets out to capture the noted bon vivant's great wit and style.
