BARRYMORE to Transfer to El Portal Theatre, 1/9-19
After an amazing and sensational run in Hollywood in November 2013 - El Portal Theatre in Association with Good People Theater Company transfer this critically acclaimed hit show BARRYMORE for 8 performances only!
BARRYMORE starring Gordon Goodman in the title role, featuring Matt Franta, written by William Luce and directed by Janet Miller runs January 9 to January 19 at El Portal's Monroe Forum Theatre, in the NOHO Arts District, North Hollywood, CA.
Set in 1942, Luce's play brings the aging, rye-soaked, but still fiercely charming John Barrymore to life in the empty theater where he and his loyal prompter, Frank, attempt to run lines for a much anticipated reprise of Barrymore's Richard III-the part that elevated him from matinee idol to serious Shakespearian in 1920, when he was 38 years old. The most prominent member of a multi-generation theatrical dynasty, he was the brother of Lionel Barrymore and Ethel Barrymore, and was the paternal grandfather of Drew Barrymore. He passed away in 1942 at age 60.
Performances are Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 8 pm and Sundays at 3 pm from January 9 thru January 19th . Eight performances only! Call El Portal Theatre Box Office 818-508-4200 or www.elportaltheatre.com. Tickets: $35; $25 Students & Seniors.
