Robert Duvall to Bring Evening of Storytelling to Barter Theatre
He's been in wars, he's survived the apocalypse, he's driven cattle across the country, but he's never been to Barter Theatre. Until now.
Barter Theatre will present legendary actor, director and producer Robert Duvall, who brings a distinctive storytelling style to his experiences on and off camera, to Gilliam Stage on Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m.
Mr. Duvall's extraordinary performances have helped immortalize some of the finest works in film, TV and theatre, many of them co-starring Barter alums such as Gregory Peck, Ned Beatty, Barry Corbin, Ernest Borgnine and Frances Fisher. You can expect an evening of insight, humor, forthright reflections and stories you'll want to share with your friends.
Duvall's career has included such feature films as "To Kill A Mockingbird," "Apocalypse Now," "The Godfather I, II, III" and "The Apostle," as well as the mini-series "Lonesome Dove," based on the hit book series by Larry McMurtry. His work has earned him 7 Oscar nominations, 4 Golden Globe Awards, a Primetime Emmy, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award, Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in "Tender Mercies."
Tickets for this special, one-night event are $250 per person and include preferred seating for the event, the post-performance reception at the Martha Washington Inn & Spa with complimentary hors d-oeuvres, open bar, live pianist, and credit in Barter Theatre's program for one year.

Barter Theatre, the nation's longest running professional theatre, is located in Abingdon, Virginia. The theatre opened in 1933 during the Great Depression. Founder Robert Porterfield offered patrons admission to the theatre by bartering food and livestock. Barter Theatre was designated as the state theatre of Virginia in 1946. It exists today as one of the last year-round professional resident repertory theaters remaining in the United States. Barter Theatre is funded in part by The Virginia Commission for the Arts and The National Endowment for the Arts.
