by BWW News Desk - Apr 23, 2017

Legendary actor of stage and screen.  Bawdy womanizer with ex-wives to spare.  Professional alcoholic.  John Stevens brings the life of an aging John Barrymore front and center in this one man show filled with ribald humor, stories - and parodies - of everyone he's ever met, verbal sparring with his exasperated prompter, and Shakespeare that just won't stick.

by Marietta Lunceford - Jun 4, 2016

What can an actor do when his series is cancelled and he isn't sure where to go from there? Head to NYC and perform Shakespeare in the park, of course. But what if that actor is scared of playing Hamlet and not sure of his own abilities? And what if he finds himself in John Barrymore's old apartment and Barrymore's ghost shows up? And what if his girlfriend is pushing him towards Hamlet and away from the bedroom? Throw in a crazy, psychic realtor and a stern German agent with the hots for Barrymore and you have the makings of I HATE HAMLET, the latest offering from South City Theatre in Pelham. (more...)
