Barrymore Theatre

Named for Ethel Barrymore, the stage has seen some of the most riveting drama to play Broadway, including the original productions of "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "A Raisin in the Sun." Ms. Barrymore opened the theatre in a production of "The Kingdom of God" in 1928. Although the Shuberts built many theatres over the years intended for specific performers, this is the only surviving theatre that still bears the name of its associated star. In recent years, the Barrymore has seen productions of "Betrayal" and "Six Degrees of Separation."
