Barrymore Theatre

Barrymore Theatre – New York History

The Barrymore Theatre is a venue located on Broadway in New York City. The theater life was in full swing in the 1920's and one of the most powerful families in the industry was the Shubert Brothers from Syracuse, whose legacy on Broadway is unparalleled. Brothers Lee, Jacob and Sam built a string of theaters in midtown Manhattan, and all over the country, many of which still survive today. One of their most successful and their longest running theater is the Ethel Barrymore Theater, built for the famous actress. Lee and Jacob (brother Sam had passed away) offered to name the theater after the famous actress as a commission for her appearing in their opening production, The Kingdom of God, which ran from December 1928 to March 1929 for a total of 92 performances. The Shubert brothers opened a string of theaters named after actors who performed in their productions, but the Ethel Barrymore Theater is the only remaining of such theaters and has been a continuous Broadway house since it opened in 1928.


Barrymore Theatre – New York Events

Named after the famous actress who appeared in the theater's first production, the Barrymore Theater has been home to some of the greatest stage and screen actors of the last 90 years. Besides Barrymore, names like Fred Astaire, who appeared at the theater in Cole Porter's Gay Divorce in 1932, legends Jessica Tandy and Marlon Brando starred in Tennessee William's A Streetcar Named Desire in 1947. Sidney Poitier starred in A Raisin in the Sun at the Barrymore Theater in 1959 and Robert Duvall performed in American Buffalo at the theater in 1977. In more recent years, the Ethel Barrymore theater was the home for the play Salome, by Oscar Wilde, in 2003, starring stars Al Pacino, Diane West, Marissa Tomei and David Strathairn. Screen legend Geoffrey Rush won a Tony Award for Best Actor in 2009 for his role in David Mamet's Race, which also starred Susan Sarandon. This venue continues to host incredible shows on a regular basis, and you can be part of it by attending one in person.
