“Barrymore’s Ghost” is the bittersweet tale of John Barrymore, a larger than life actor, but also a flawed human. Not only was he the first box office star, but he was also the first nationally known movie star. And it is widely recognized that he was the first of his kind to grapple with national fame, and all its trappings. As he is haunting the local stage, he candidly talks about his marriages (or bus accidents as he calls them), his relationships with his famous siblings Ethel and Lionel Barrymore, and his penchant for being prickly to directors, co-stars and even loyal fans. He talks about his most famous accomplishment of playing Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” and his list of early American Films both silent and “talkie”. He also talks about his drinking, womanizing and outlandish behavior in and out of the spotlight. He describes his “castle” and his opulent lifestyle without apology but certainly with a self-reflective question as to why. The questions he has about the way he lived are ones we all have at some time in our life. Jud Harmon takes the stage once more to bring John Barrymore’s ghost to life.
