The Spring of 1942.
One month before John Barrymore's death.
John Barrymore was the black sheep of America's most illustrious
acting family. Celebrated for his charisma and matinee idol looks, he
was for awhile America's most popular actor. Famous for his stage
roles in Richard III and Hamlet, he also made more than fifty films.
But alcoholism soon dissipated his talents, and he became known more
for his Falstaffian behavior and outrageous high jinx than for his
art. In CRT's Barrymore, William Luce has adapted his acclaimed
Broadway hit especially for audio in this stunning production.
