Photo Flash: BARRYMORE Takes a Dry, Humorous Look at a Theatre Legend

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.

Starring: John Stevens as John Barrymore and Samuel Denomy as the Prompter

Obsidian Theatre, 3522 White Oak

April 17 - 26, Mondays, Wednesdays and Sunday at 8PM

Tickets: $18/$15 for students and seniors

In 2007, Christine Weems, Michael Weems and Eddie Rodriguez were not only very good friends, but board members of Phare Play Productions - a Manhattan theatre Production Company dedicated to developing new works and new talent in the tiny city of New York. Fast forward to 2011 where they all find themselves (for various reasons) in the fourth largest city in the country. Having taken their talents down south to Houston, these three have reunited and joined forces with the incomparable talents of L. RoBert Westeen and Bryan Maynard to form Cone Man Running Productions in order to continue to bring great entertainment - both theatre and film - to Houston.

Cone Man Running Productions seeks to challenge the playwrights, directors and actors while enticing audiences with not only traditional theatre productions, but with unique and innovative theatrical projects like the Spontaneous Smattering and the Pass and Go.
